Lo Presto, Charles T.; And Others
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, v30 n3 p205-21 1994-95
Catholic college students (n=282) evaluated scenarios that manipulated precipitating illness and gender of suicide victim. Variables affecting the evaluator, such as gender, mood state, and religiosity, were also considered. Results indicated that the unacceptability of suicide is a function of precipitating illness and gender of victim as well as a function of an evaluator's mood and religiosity. (JPS)
