    then they order the kit, it takes a day or 2 to arrive, that person has time to reconsider....
    If they do the deed prematurely, the deed is done, no going back, but it is their choice.

    A strange thread to give a "like", but what you state is true and goes unnoticed by many. I feel for people that live in constant harrowing pain, and feel for them more if they can't get the meds to alleviate it. Must be pure hell.

    You say that like emotional pain somehow isn't as legitimate as physical pain.

    If someone is determined to take their life, they will take their life. I don't personally agree with it, but I doubt that without this "suicide kit", the guy would not have committed suicide. He most likely would have just found a different way to do it. Possibly a much worse way to do the deed.

    No controlled substances (not that that would change my opinion), no hazardous materials, no violence, no danger to anybody who isn't using the kit to end their own life.

    I don't see a thing wrong with it.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Emotional pain tends to be more transient than physical pain, particularly of the kind associated with a terminal illness. Someone who has mental problems should seek help, not end their life based on their emotional state at one snapshot in their life. I had severe depression when I was 18-19 years old, but it's hard for me to envision how I would be better off if I had ended my life instead of overcoming it.

    The woman who sold him this kit should be prosecuted.

    She sold him a plastic tube, a plastic bag, and a book. Hardly illegal.

    I believe emotional pain can be far greater than physical pain. I find it highly distasteful for people to bash suicidal individuals or to speak ill of those who have taken their lives. I believe that suicide is an unfortunate and horrible decision, but people don't chose to make that decision because they aren't in excruciating emotional or physical pain.

    What this woman did was wrong, but not illegal.
