a cheerful subject I know, but I was just thinking this last night and I can't see why it would be illegal.
if you successfully commit suicide they can't exactly arrest or fine you or anything and if you don't successfully commit suicide then technically you haven't broken the law.
if you commit suice it's harmign yourself not others so how is it breaking the law?
I can understand if you were committing suicide in a way that would harm others or something for instance a few years ago there was a man who clambered out onto a ledge coming off a bridge in Edinburgh and they had to close the road off to talk him down and the road was a main road into town so it caused lots of traffic jams and slowness etc. but if you were just in your own home and tried to overdose or something why would it be illegal? unless maybe you had a family to support, but aside from that, why?
sorry if I sound like a complete idiot asking this but I really don't understand why it's illegal.
