112. I don't think it's the fact that suicide is illegal that is stopping people.
Like I said, if people really want to kill themselves, they will do it. If they want help, they hopefully will find it. If people want to intervene, people intervene.

Nothing in my post suggested that it's fine and dandy for people to off themselves. My point is, I'm more comfortable with individuals being the ones who we assume should have the final say about their own bodies-- as opposed to, say, the government.

I don't understand why that "argument" seems to deeply frighten some people, personally.
