I may have a theory on why that is. I think it's considered a sin to commit suicide so they kill you so you can avoid going to hell for committing suicide. I may be wrong but it sounds realistic.

Also, when one person commits suicide it can often prompt others to do so, usually those close to them and not all suicide attempts are legit, not saying its to get attention some are just people seeing if they can go through with it. So I think it was more of deterrent for potential suicide as opposed to punishing the people who attempt it.
tl;dr it was there to stop suicide attempts by people unsure whether they wanted to die or not by assuring death.

Talking of causing a tidal wave of suicides, look up the Bridgend suicides. We got a lovely town 'round 'ere.

There was a few people I knew of that killed themselves when I was in school. Strange, strange times.
