It's one thing when people go on and on with their fucking platitudes when talking about a young and physically healthy person, but it's especially fucked up that such an old man still had to jump through hoops and travel 8000 miles away from his home to get a peaceful end.

“I would prefer to be able to do it in this country,” he told 9 News Australia about leaving Australia. “This country is my home. I’m sorry to have to go a long way away in order to end my life.”

I thought this place was supposed to be pro-choice about suicide, but it's pro-life. by [deleted] in SanctionedSuicide

Again the problem is the lack of users. This site is like reddit but because it's so small, every new post is just coming up on the front page and normie comments get through. On this site everyone is auto-subscribed to everything so the subscriber count doesn't reflect people who specifically wanted to be on SS.

It's hard to get the word out about this place, the only thing we can do to get more activity other than making posts. If this had been around immediately after /r/SS was banned it would be a different situation, but everyone is scattered around now. Maybe mention it over on SS.com - not portraying it as "competition" just another site to use for people who prefer this format, if you're a member of any discords or anything maybe mention it there too.

Agree. There's hardly anyone here, there's nothing to even moderate. Jumping to creating new communities this fast is just going to make the userbase even smaller.

Over the last eight months he has learned how to move his hands from an armrest to his lap, and to blink once for ‘no’ and twice for ‘yes’.

When Helen asks her son if he still wants to die, he blinks twice.
