He will not get arrested for not preventing your suicide, I don't know where you read that.
Not preventing is aiding.241. Every one who
- counsels a person to commit suicide, or
- aids or abets a person to commit suicide, whether suicide ensues or not, is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding fourteen years.
What a collection of interesting replies - a good read
Suicide is a totally self-involved exercise and my only wish when the topic comes up is people would consider this last act for themselves only and put their wishes in writing when they are
still healthy and young enough to make a serious decision - even when considering some of the
terrible tragedy life throws at us in the form of illness or decline into dementia as we age.
It is a gift you can give to your family members if there is time - outlining all the possible situations (illlness or accident or or or)....so that terrible life or death situation is left up to
you and becomes your sole responsibility.
Whether we are 'for' or 'against' when we write about euthanasia or suicide, we are speaking
in vast terms regarding others - let's all think seriously about our own decision and then in
years ahead make it known in written form.
Don't ask your loved family members to make the decision for you....do it yourself.
