Hi,
I checked the subreddits and it looks they are not available. I know the controversy of timetogo but this is too much if they remove the subreddits.

Reddit sucks

You know what I don't get is the fact that one of the creators of reddit killed himself and they just want to sweep it under the rug? Like what gives, they should know by now and look what they keep doing. They keep banning every subreddit that shows the brutality of life and covering it up for pr points thinking the world is a pro lifers dream. Pathetic.

What’s fucked up is that many people visit those subreddits to communicate with others going through a similar painful experience, vent during times of crisis and get support. Those pages weren’t encouraging people to kill themselves, and banning them will give people one less place to get help.

Seems like the more “pro-life” someone is the less they give a fuck about people who want to live. Take Bush for example - he banned federal funding for stem cell research. Yet he was perfectly content with causing the deaths of over 100,000 Iraqis and 4000 Americans. I guess to him, stem cells are more valuable than 10 year olds.

Trump is “pro-life” yet Ben Carson, who he appointed of HUD, wants to raise rent on low income families in section 8 housing. Trump himself couldn’t give a fuck about healthcare for infants and families. He still doesn’t want to ban AR-15s to keep live loving Americans safer. He don’t care if kids or the elderly breathe in pollution. He doesn’t care if adults are put in danger at work due to a regulation cuts. Doesn’t care about childhood education.

I can give countless examples of people like this.

These people have 1 thing in common - they are against abortion and euthanasia. They want to control women, oppose LGBT rights, and control people who want to die. Yet for the people who want to live, they create policies to make it more difficult to survive.

I generally agree with you, but I think when it comes to Reddit, their ban-policy is mostly influenced by economic decisions. After all, suicide and death aren't ad-friendly topics, so only pro life subs like r/suicidewatch get to stay. It's still a shitty decision tho.

I agree with the above but they were probably afraid of a liability suit by a deceased person's relatives. Michelle's Carter's conviction may have played a role in Redditor's owners deciding to play it safe.

If suffering is profitable, under capitalism, you are going to suffer.
Exactly. A suicidally depressed person is a paying customer. Even if on public assistance/free health insurance the system gets the $$$ from somewhere as long as the person is kept alive.
