Thomas Aquinas States That It Is Altogether Unlawful To Kill Oneself For Three R (1)

Thomas Aquinas states that, “It is altogether unlawful to kill oneself, for three reasons… Secondly, because every part, as such, belongs to the whole.

V, 11) (ST IIa-IIae q. 64 a.5).

How would one criticize the conclusion that “Hence by killing himself he injures the community”?
