They'd really be sticking it to them if the punishment was life in prison.

England has been a religious country for the longest time. Committing suicide is considered to be one of the gravest sins one could ever accomplish, so by forbidding them to commit suicide, they were doing them a favor.   
   
"Oh you want to die? Please don't commit suicide, you'll go to Hell if you do. Here, let us give you a death sentence. You get to die, and you go to Heaven. You're welcome."   
   
At least that's how I like to see it.

I'm not talking about how England is nowadays, but how it used to be. I'm pretty sure that what the content refers to hasn't been made 10 years ago. A couple centuries ago, they were still pretty damn religious.

It's against the religion of a catholic. I believe England was protestant. Still, I'm sure they didn't encourage it.

Protestant yes. Though I never really knew the differences between the two. But yeah, it would be weird to actually encourage it.

I also believed this point of view but then the person who executes the person who attempted suicide goes to Hell for killing another human being, even if it's "mercy killing" because I don't think the laws of the bible apply to our human laws.

Am I the only one that believes suicide should be 100% legal, and should be done in hospitals (you would go to a doctor, request committing suicide, and after a 3 day waiting period If you still wish to kill yourself you would return to the doctor, who would then inject you with something painlessly lethal.

Where's the fun in that? We I got suicidal my plan was to take a car and just floor it, seeing how much damage I could do.

Would you have to be of sound mind for that though?

Because that's a catch 22 right there. The chances of someone being diagnosed of sound mind requesting suicide is quite low so it'd be a really awkward one to decide on the details of said law.

depends how you define sound mind.. some would argue that anyone willing to kill themselves isn't sane..

However I think sanity should be judged on their return visit by their ability to fill out the required paperwork (10~ pages), and maybe a drug test.

True, though I would imagine hospitals giving their doctors choices on whether or not they would assist in the suicides, though I see no reason a nurse can't hand the patient the needle and give them brief instruction on where to stick it..

It's still illegal to commit suicide in Sweden. The most stupid part though is that it really does prevent people from committing suicide...

Hmm, well the only source I have is that I've heard it, even from a cop. But I looked into it now and I can't find anywhere that it's illegal, so it seems that you're right.

Thanks for letting me know

"So, you are 100 years old, can't move, are constantly experiencing pains in your everything, and are perfectly sane? Sorry, we can't end your life, but we CAN try to make you live as long as possible in a vegetable state, shoving medicines into you and hoping for a miracle."

Isn't it illegal to jump off buildings in New York, punishable by death?

I was wondering if it was one of those laws that slipped through the cracks. I could see it being introduced in the 30's for the Wallstreet Crash, when jumping was apparently quite popular.

Yeah, apparently it was to discourage people "thinking" about it, because they could take a few pedestrians with them. So they can arrest them for planning to do it......but I wonder if they'd still carry out the death penalty if you jumped off like a newspaper stand or something doing Free Running in New York?

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.

I meant it in the versus tense type thing. I'm saying I do not want to go to heaven, and would rather die. But since I would go to heaven or hell anyways, its self contradictory, making me look like a retard, but since I am aware of it, it just becomes funny.
