  • Hey Visitor,

    In light of recent events, all community members in the US should reach out to their representative in regards to the Stop Online Suicide Assistance Forums Act that has been introduced in congress. This bill, if passed, could criminalize this community and hold it liable for simply hosting information.

    You should be able to locate and contact your represenative by going to this website. You can also contact Lori Trahan, the one spearheading this bill by calling her office at (202) 225-3411 or by leaving a message on the contact form on her site.

    One of the best ways to combat this is to make your voice heard. We're not political activists, but we made this notice to let you know that you do have a voice and that you do have representives that represent you in congress.

Hey guys,

The tag "recovery" was created for those who do want to choose to continue with life. I've had a few people reach out to me asking for help and advice on how to beat depression or move past the idea of CTB, so this should be a good addition.

Although this is SanctionSuicide we are ultimately pro-choice and here because we share similar views. Not everyone here is going to choose ctb and I do believe both sides should be explored.

If you see this tag please keep in mind that the user is ultimately choosing not to ctb and needs different advice/type of discussion.

Thanks!

Thanks DF90, even though I am most probably going to CTB, it is good to see that this forum is standing up to its pro-choice stance. Thanks for making it easier for people to express different opinions and for them to be supported appropriately by the use of this tag. I hope that others also embrace this change.

Thank you so much! I was a bit worried people would get upset, but it's nice to know there are definitely people out there who agree! I hope that people who don't want to ctb also feel comfortable posting as people who do!

Absolutely, couldn’t agree more, a place for everybody to talk about a range of issues is important and having a specific part of the forum to do this will be helpful. Those wanting to get better should be afforded that chance. Great idea! Thank you.

Yes, we are pro-choice, not pro-suicide. Pro-lifers often have difficulty discerning the difference.

I think that most members will never actually CTB, but that's fine. This is one of the few places where people can talk about this stuff openly and honestly, and that's what people need the most. If just being able to talk can help someone continue, I think that's wonderful.

We can't talk about it with our friends, with our family, with anybody, because of the way our culture denounces suicide. So instead we bare our souls to strangers on the internet because the strangers are the only ones who understand.

Thank you El Toppo, your post sums up beautifully why this forum exists and the good it does do despite what many may think. Pro Choice all the way!

God, absolutely.

I don't think I could ever bring myself to CTB but I find it difficult to talk about wanting to with other people. My appeasement issues go into overdrive and I feel like I have to constantly mention "don't worry I'm not at risk!!11". Ugh. I'm so grateful for a place to discuss this topic without having to worry about that shit.
