    I mean, none of it makes any sense at all to me.
    It's more about the state doing its best to stop the suicide from happening instead of just standing aside and allowing the person to off himself.
    As far as I know, people who tried to suicide do not receive punishment from the state, but rather support.

    I have a gun to my head right now, what's the state going to do to stop me?

    Nothing, that's what. And IMO, they have no reason to anyway.

    yet virtually all attempts of the Federal govt to 'Prevent" something has failed

    like the police they are their to respond to 'things', except for the rare flukes where they just happened to be in the right place at the right time.

    it just doesnt happen enough to be policy

    The state can't help a case it doesn't know about.

    I've heard about a lot of cases where the police had stopped a person from killing himself seconds before he did it.

    I don't know how it is over there, over here it is an obvious policy.
    A person has tried to kill himself on an online blog, one of the bloggers reported to the police, the police got the IP and sent a unit to the person's house, bashed the door and stopped the person seconds from hanging himself up.

    Re: Should a person be allowed to commit suicide?

    Absolutely they should be able to.

    I am the owner of my body. What I do with it is my own business as long as I do not infringe on someone else's rights, period.

    The right to your own person is fundamental. Without even the the right to decide what I do to my own body, other rights are useless because in the end, you are owned by the state.

    Of course I would try to help him/her out as most suicide attempts are a cry for attention/help in some form. This is why most suicides fail. They are not serious attempts but a call for help.

    yet in a fit of temporary insanity, contrary to your own personal beliefs you decide to kill yourself in the heat of the moment
    After the state saves your life, you are grateful becuase it was only a temporary weakness you had not desire to make it a permanent solution

    is it still wrong?

    Sorry but that scenario is irrelevant.

    It would not change my view one bit.
