10 Biggest Countries Where Suicide is Illegal

Of course it is not illegal in a way that someone is prosecuted if he, she commits suicide (and manages to finish it), the government takes the person’s property and unfortunately the family members can undergo certain procedures. And the dead body must be treated as it is usually done. If someone only tries to commit suicide and fails in that intention, that may be regarded illegal. Euthanasia and assisted dying are also difficult questions in these countries, where these two still haven’t been made legal. The assisted suicide is actually the suicide in which the person who wants to commit it is completely aware of the process and performs it alone, while the physician only assists it in providing the lethal means. Insidermonkey experts made a list of 10 biggest countries where suicide is illegal.

While euthanasia is different, because during the procedure the patient is aware of it – the doctor is totally charge of it, and gives the lethal substance intravenously. All of these are very controversial questions and one should not say opinion without observing the issues. In order to get the right answer, Insider Monkey has consulted sites like Mental Health Daily, Quora, BBC, The Guardian, WHO Suicide and Depression Stats by countries. Interestingly, there are countries where for example suicide is illegal, but euthanasia is not. Cyprus is only European country where suicide is still illegal.
