First off, suicide being illegal is redundant, given one cannot charge the deceased defendant. Secondly, forcing someone to live is cruel, given that is deciding who lives and who dies. It is like playing God - no one should have the right. I don't agree with people who think they aren't strong enough to live any longer but I am aware of what it is like to want to die and having no choice but to continue suffering. If you knew how any specific suicidal person felt, I can almost guarantee you would be able to sympathize and, while you might still not think they can't go on, you would know how it feels to be, essentially, helpless. Of course, no one is ever helpless, but if you've lost all hope, you might as well be. Will to survive is key, and when you've lost that will, death is the only peace.
