People are advertising for suicide partners online. This disturbing story comes to us from ABC News. Websites, where the clinically depressed or mentally unbalanced can get help killing themselves, are popping up all over the web. Even worse: they're egged on by people calling themselves "suicide experts." These so-called "experts" hand out advice on how and where to commit suicide and even provide recipes for deadly combinations of drugs or chemicals. The "suicide experts" push sad, lonely people to end their life because they get some kind of sick satisfaction out of it. Now, lawmakers around the world are cracking down on these creepy voyeurs because of several high-profile cases. One of them involves Joanne Lee from England. She suffered from depression and anorexia for years. After a few failed suicide attempts, she posted an ad on a pro-suicide website looking for someone to die with. A man answered the ad and within days they had mixed up a batch of deadly gas and locked themselves in her car to slowly asphyxiate together. So why aren't these sites shut down? Because free speech laws protect the internet. People can be held accountable for encouraging suicide online. There are already laws on the books in the US making it illegal to encourage suicide, but they only apply if the people are in the same room or on the phone. That's changing, though. Lawmakers in England just made it illegal to encourage suicide over the internet, and similar laws are being considered in the US and Canada after a man, posing as a young female nurse, went online and urged dozens of people to kill themselves. The fact is, law or no law, suicide is never the answer. If you're having suicidal thoughts please get help. In Canada go to SuicideInfo.CA, and in the US, it's SuicidePreventionLifeLine.org.
