L Ross commented on Jenntleman's blog post Suicide: Should it be a crime?
"Absolutely NOT!  If someone truly wishes to end his/her life as a final answer to unsolvable problems with poverty, disability, physical pain, addictions, etc., he/she should be allowed to do so.  Since when did the government have the…"

"If you think about it only attempted suicide could be a crime, at least here on earth.  Unless they want to try a corpse or punish your relatives (and that last only happens in tax cases)."

"Ugh, I should have said "intrinsically correct" or "intrinsically best" to disambiguate."

SteveInCO commented on Jenntleman's blog post Legalism or Rationalism?
"Because clearly SOME sort of rule is needed for this situation.  This is the one people will understand and generally abide by, so it makes sense to follow it.  This is why one drives on the right side of the road (most places). …"

Michael Penn commented on Jenntleman's blog post Suicide: Should it be a crime?
"Religion teaches that if you commit suicide you are lost and "burn in hell" forever. The minister has a "way out" for this saying a person committing suicide is "not in their right mind." Therefore, they cannot be held…"

Michael Penn commented on Jenntleman's blog post Legalism or Rationalism?
"Not stopping may cause car wrecks, pedestrian impacts, and legal problems when you get the ticket. My personal pet peeve on 4 way stops is that we should do this according to who got to the intersection first. It says that in the drivers manual.…"

Richard Lawrence commented on Jenntleman's blog post Legalism or Rationalism?
"First: to avoid getting hit by another car, second: to avoid hitting another car and third: to avoid getting a traffic ticket.  There are some talented drivers who are able to achieve the trifecta in these situations."

"My absolute most favorite? The Gods Must Be Crazy. The sequel mildly disappointed me. "

Tom Sarbeck commented on Jenntleman's blog post Suicide: Should it be a crime?
"For the person most affected, continuing life or ending life is a rational or pragmatic choice. In a secular USofA, criminalizing suicide violates the First Amendment religion clause. In a web search on "painless suicide" I learned a lot. "

Tom Sarbeck commented on Jenntleman's blog post Legalism or Rationalism?
"BTFW, I was neither a legalist nor a rationalist; I was a pragmatist. "

"While living in Daytona Beach, on my way to and from work I often did not stop at a sign near my house. To friends I spoke of my "dynamic stops". In about three years the police ticketed me once. "

"For me...reading the bible and prayer -- on-my-knees-pleading-seeking-searching-childlike-blood-sweating-begging, and unanswered prayer. Between the two, I could not find the god that was supposed to exist, and the one that I did "see" was…"

Suicide: Should it be a crime?

Posted on March 5, 2013 at 5:27pm 10 Comments

I am just wondering what other sensible people think regarding the topic of suicide being treated as a crime. It seems in our society there is no room for the open discussion of suicide as a matter of choice rather than an act of amorality against one's self, or, at the very least, a symptom of mental disease.

I find it rather peculiar that suicide is viewed in such a way when one takes into consideration the idealization of suicidal characters in our various mythologies and…

Welcome, Jenntleman! Glad you could join us. :D

Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that's on your mind, Hang With Friends. You might also like Heathen Geeks and Geek & Nerd Haven.

I also recommend Eco-Logical and Climate Concerns, since the climate is changing so drastically.

After you've searched for topics of interest in "Groups" above and in the "Forums", don't forget to look at recent activity which hides along the right margin of the page all the way at the bottom.

On a personal note, I've developed an animated gif technique, sort of “pull quote marries slideshow”. Samples are scattered across various groups, but you can find them easily by going to my twitter account. Each tweet has a link (after the description and before the hashtags) to a visually rich example here at Atheist Nexus. If you like them, please follow me
