• 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.

The first one is a sport writer Martin Manley who did a whole website about his life and why he killed himself. Really a nice read: https://anon.to/wvFj1M

Other one is Will H. Moore, a professor of political science at Arizona State University who blogged about his suicide: https://anon.to/zILmNU

If anybody's looking for reasons to do it, I think both sites have really good and well put arguments to do it. Especially what Manley wrote really resonates with me:

"I point to the blip argument. There will always be reasons to want to stay alive another year or five years or 10 years. It wouldn’t have mattered how long I lived, there would have been hundreds or thousands of itches to scratch!

Don’t think there weren’t times every single day when my mind would be tempted to say “I can’t wait until (pick a date) to see what happens with (pick a subject)” regarding the future beyond August 15, 2013… but I never waivered for a single second because I always knew that whatever day I died – whether 2013 or 2023 or 2033, I would never have been able to satisfy those thoughts."

I'm still reading but this is definitely some interesting and well written stuff! Thanks for sharing.

I remember reading a blog entry about a girl who was very passionate in science and wanted to learn more and more about the universe. She was, at first, eager to walk down this path, then someday she realized that no matter what, her lifespan wouldn't have been enough to fulfill her dream, because the pursuit of knowledge requires somehow an eternal life.

She made some remarks about wanting to die for this very reason.

Thanks for these, am going to read through them now. Adam Maier-Clayton was another guy who recently died who, despite being relatively young, had really good, logical arguments and advocated for assisted suicide. After reading interviews with him it was hard to argue that he shouldn't be allowed.

I am slowly reading Martin Manley's blog and... Let's say he sure did have a personality. Or two personalities, to be more precise.

This is interesting stuff. Thanks for sharing. I am still on the fence on whether or not I should publish my (still incomplete) autobiography before I kill myself. Not sure if it will do any good to anyone.
