• 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 good news: I hope to convince you that "survival instinct" is actually something known as "Existence Bias" (search Thomas Metzinger). It stems from fear of being without time. We are without time every night we dip into deep, dreamless sleep.

On the contrary, a feeling of apprehensiveness toward a given method is simply being rational: "this doesn't look good enough/safe to me"

The bad news: We have to do the work to arrange for ourselves a reliable method. It is a solitary endeavor, and for some of us it will be the only thing worth putting our effort into. Unfortunately, at present: Switzerland (and Belgium) are the only regions which are socioculturally mature enough for assisted suicide and/or euthanasia.
