Quote from: viocjit on July 21, 2019, 08:00:12 PMI don't know what is the situation where you live because I don't know where you live but in my country (France) it is not considered as a basic human right.You can be legally being committed in a psychiatric facility if you try to suicide yourself in France or if you say you want to suicide yourself.If you try to suicide yourself you will be considered as a person in "PÃ©ril imminent" (Imminent danger) and people in "PÃ©ril imminent" can be involuntary committed.For those who can read French I advise them to read articles L3211-1 to L3251-6 and R3211-1 to R3225-1 of "Code de la santÃ© publique" (Public Health Code) to know the basis about involuntary commitment in France.
Quote from: Baruch on July 22, 2019, 03:51:46 AMIt is not legal in the US. Isn't it legal in the Netherlands?The logic, some people who commit suicide like to engage in behavior that endangers others, let alone the usual murder/suicide of a spouse. So like drug use, it is a marginally sociopathic activity.
Quote from: Mike Cl on August 01, 2019, 09:07:53 AMActually it is legal in at least one state--Oregon. Two doctors have to agree, and then it can be done legally.
Quote from: Cavebear on August 01, 2019, 10:17:21 AMI still think that is something I should be in control of. Why does my State think it owns me? What part of my decision of my existence is properly controlled by anyone else?

Quote from: Mike Cl on August 01, 2019, 11:21:27 AMI do agree with you on that. But, at this time, 9 states allow assisted suicide. That is a step forward. There is a process attached to it by the state, but at least it is legal.
