some but not all. some will realize that they want to live but for others not so much. ending your own life can be difficult so not many people go through with it but if the death penalty were to be involved, then they would not kill themselves but let the death penalty kill their lives for them. so if the death penalty were to be involved then i think it would actually encourage suicide. people will still attempt to commit suicide so it won't actually lessen it. those who want to die will find a way to die. in this case, they are being help to end their lives.

Some one said once that there would be less suicides, if you would get a death penalty for it.
I couldn't find anything like an article ~ to bad.

so,
Do you think less people would try to end their own life if the would be killed for it?

I think so simply because most humans are afraid of death and simple saying that they will be killed if they do try to commit suicide, will make them think at least twice before acting.

Besides; you tried to kill someone(yourself in this case but still), don't you deserve death?


the thing is that the death penalty is only used in serious crimes like killing in cold blood or killing a cop
for trying suicide the goverment sends you to a mental hospital

first of all - if you're commiting suicide it usually means that you want to die...I don't think how you die would matter then would it? lol..

second of all - this is a stupid question because studies have shown that death penalty doesn't decrease the criminality rate...I work for Amnesty International so I should know...the only reason why they use death penalty in the US is because the term "tough on crime" is very popular among americans ~ and the politicians can benefit from this.

Stricter penalties, death penalty, and so on - these things do nothing for the criminality rate. Studies have shown that things like activities and clubs for the young teenagers decreases criminality a lot...so my answer is NOPE

...it makes....no sense.... Why would a person wanting to kill themselves care whether they die or not again? Maybe some would be thinking about the law and consequences and be fearful of it, a psychological thing, but most wouldn't care, it's actually pretty stupid to say something like that. Also, if you try to kill yourself, don't you deserve to die? What the hell is that?
