Ok as a disclaimer to this question, before you go nuts, I am not insane/suicidal/depressed/etc.
This question has been the center of much legal/moral/ethical discussion at different times of my life. You might start off saying that “no thats ludicrous, who would arrest such a person,” but hold your horses. Many people I have approached with this question respond to the idea of suicide as being selfish. They claim that suicidal people should get punished for worrying their loved ones. Others claim that in a legal sense it could be argued as an extension of murder. Of course the more psychology oriented folks tend to think that its horrible to punish someone whos already apparently going through a horrible time in their lives. They argue that even if all they want is attention then they will get it. Even if it is negative attention, its still attention.
(1) Do you know of any laws expressly forbidding suicide?
(2) Whats your take?
