Why are there laws in some places to prevent (or attempt) people from killing themselves?


Why does the government get to decide what is lawful to do to one's own body? Aren't these laws just a waste of time considering that people who really want to die will do so no matter what the laws are?

    There is no comparison between a stranger murdering someone against their will and that person deciding for themselves that they no longer want to live. Of course they should be of sound mind and understand their act. Many have good reasons to die,

    They have a "right to die" law but they are afraid to allow people to use it.

    They fear lawsuits from families and interference from Federal courts.

    It is tragic for those who want to end their suffering, its their body and should be their choice!
