The suffering of family and friends is incredibly minor in comparison to the reduction in animal suffering my death would have. A dozen people cry for a week or 2 versus thousands of animals not suffering in a multitude of ways becasue of my existence for the next 50 years...(and I know my brother would be stoked to get my motorcycle)...it seems like logic to me...I don't favor my life or any human life over an animal life...they're equal.
Cry for a week or 2? Only if they don't like you much!
Again your posts in this thread sound very much like they're coming from someone who's been lucky enough not to experience acute life-threatening illness or to have suffered a bereavement of someone very close. If so then you're lucky, but please take a break from feeling sorry for yourself for just one minute to consider that some others aren't so fortunate.
