I don't think this topic get enough attention, this is about the legality of suicide, assisted suicide and the ethics surrounding it. The laws making suicide illegal i think are preposterous, how can you be so inclinded to tell someone who isn't 'intrested' in the game of life or in some sort of trauma or suffering to stay here. The law itself seems to mostly target people who are dying in pain and to weak to do the job, if you are capable of taking your own life, then there is nothing they can really do if you execute it right. And i hear people talk about, you know, how there parents would be devastated and it is selfish for him to kill himself, but maybe it is the parents who are selfish, if they understood what there son or elder or whatever the situation was experiencing they would understand. (and if it was legal maybe there son could actually open up to his parents without being sent to a mental hospital). Also i think just in general suicide should be a personal choice and shouldn't be so badly judged by society labeling people as quitters, weak..etc
