My view is that I think the law on attempting suicide should be revisited or reviewed with a view of protecting the life of those that attempt suicide. This is a psychological and emotional issue rather than the issue of guilt.
The government through Parliament should consider other area of psychological and emotional help rather than a head-on with emotions which may further attribute a real physical danger to the person.
