Can You Think of Anything Else Like This

Suicide is legal.
Assisted suicide is not.

Is there anything else that is legal, that if someone helps you do it, it becomes illegal?


  1. At old common law suicide was a crime because killing oneself burdened one's family or government with cleanup, burial, and estate issues, without the consent of those responsible. Another theory held that suicide was a criminal act only where it placed others in danger.

  2. The funny thing is that if you take the argument to its ridiculous end, then capital punishment should be the best deterrent of suicide.
