But what if you've been at the lowest point of your life for so long that you've forgotten how happiness felt?
What if you've become so sick that you don't want things to get better?
What if the only thing you want is death, can anyone really talk you out of it?
I understand that in some cases, burn victims for example(my mom is a nurse) don't want to live anymore because they are in excruciating pain getting their wraps changed 3 times a day. They can't eat by themselfs , can't walk by themselfs, can't sleep, they can't function and 90% of the time they can't look in a mirror because they are so horrably disfigured. Then maybe i would consider an assited suicide to relieve them of their pain. How ever here are 3 cases of people who came out of the dark and over came that depression.
Each of them managed to find a new purpose in life despite their problems.Which just gos to show you that you CAN get better! It's a matter of perspective, not giving up and making the most of what you have.
In regards to legality i think suicide should not be considered criminal nor should it be condoned. You can't really punish some one for not wanting to live but fact is every one has to deal with their existense and using suicide to avoid ones problems and responsability is cowardice.
