Suicide has always been looked down upon and people would do just about everything in their willpower to prevent it. There are plenty methods to avert people from committing suicide such as the suicide health prevention hotline, support groups, friends, and family. However, all these methods are not as resourceful when the person is already dying. And, if the one who wants to commit suicide is lying in their death bed enduring an excruciating pain, then do the people who oppose suicide have the right to intervene with the dying person’s last wishes? Physician-assisted suicide is a practice where doctors decide to help end their hopelessly ill patient’s life painlessly even if he or she requests for it (Assisted Suicide). If doctors do follow the patient’s desired death, then are the doctors sending subliminal message saying these patients’ lives are now meaningless. Many believe the doctors treating the patients do not have the right to take lives instead save them, which leads to the religious factor in this situation. They believe the only way someone can be taken from this world is through the hands of God and any other way is simply wrong and immoral. Death is a delicate topic many try to ignore for however long they are able to. Humans have a very difficult time coping with the death of a loved one, so it is much harder for the friends and family to accept than the terminally ill. Although physician-assisted suicide permanently relieves the pain of a dying patient, PAS
Intro Have you ever been through a tough situation and felt like there was no solution? Many people do and unfortunately many people also solve their solution by ending their life. In fact, every 13 minutes, someone commits suicide in the U.S (http://www.save.org/). Whether your friends or acquaintances, chances are you will know someone who has committed suicide. However, this doesn’t have to be the case. Urban Meyer, current coach of the Ohio State football team, once stated, “Are you going to be the problem or the solution?” An organization known as the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) has decided they will be the solution to suicide.
The debate of whether assisted suicide should be lawful, is still of some concern today. Despite the growing advances and discoveries in medicine, there are still illnesses in which scientists, physicians, and nurses have yet to cure or solve. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, cancer along with heart disease continues to be the leading cause of death in America (Leading Cause of Death, 2014). The prolonged suffering and pain that precedes a person’s inevitable death, is often seen with cancer and other deadly diseases. But the question is should assisted suicide be against the law?
In any given society, there our many events and circumstances that produce national, ethnic, indigenous, and popular culture. From an anthropological perspective, we are responsible for examining these events, as well as controversies, as they relate to the different stakeholders that are present in each diverse culture.

There are various opinions on assisted suicide, in some cases it could be merciful, in others it is not really justified. While writing this paper I have found research that supports both views. My personal opinion is right down the middle of both. I’m torn between the moral aspects of taking a life to be wrong. However, I can also agree, if someone is genuinely ready to leave behind the pain and suffering from their illness, they should have the right to choose so.
The National Suicide Prevention Strategy (NSPS) promotes prevention and early intervention on suicide. It originated in 1995, and then expanded in 1999 when more evidence for the risk of suicidal behaviours emerged. The main objectives of NSPS are to target suicide prevention activities, create standards and raise the quality of suicide prevention, build and educate on self-help, improve the community, and improve the understanding of suicide prevention. The components of the strategy are listed in four inter-related components:
Suicide Prevention Week Keynote Event: A Call For Further Action Three people in my life have completed suicide; my uncle, my mom’s late fiance, and my step brother on my dad’s side, within four years of each other. I’ve witnessed each parental figure in my life become compromised by grief and the inevitable pain accompanying it, and I’ve seen the way depression can plague someone so deeply, even without the ending of suicide. The prevalence and growing numbers of deaths by suicide calls for a revised manner of education on all mental illnesses and the preventative measures one can take to reduce risk. Initially, when I heard of the Suicide Prevention Week Keynote event with Jamie Tworkowski (founder of ‘To Write Love On Her Arms’) I was thrilled. Hosting such an event on a college campus, presenting to a population greatly affected by mental illness, is demonstrative of the steps that should be taken toward raising awareness. Any opportunity for a comprehensive view on mental health and its significance is one to be taken advantage of. However, as the night proceeded, I did take note of several things that would improve the layout of any future events, as well as further deepen an individual’s comprehension of mental illness.
