Yeah, it’s not just you. An article published in the Southern Medical Journal found that rates of all suicides increased in jurisdictions were assisted suicide and euthanasia were legalized. I wrote about it here:
Under Bill C-14, people in Attawapiskat who meet the criteria provided in Bill C-14 will be able to request suicide assistance and end their lives. The argument may be made that few of those suicidal in Attawapiskat would qualify for assisted suicide or euthanasia under Bill C-14. However, as the study in the October edition of the Southern Medical Journal demonstrates, general suicide rates increase, not decrease, after legalization. Overall, there has been an average of a 6.3 per cent increase in suicides (assisted and unassisted) among the states where assisted suicide was legalized.

Maybe we should let the Globe and Mail know. Sigh.by
