Who owns your body?

Unfortunately for anybody who wants to end their existence and is looking to depart with the beautiful views of the Golden Gate, San Francisco plans on hiring 5 new “suicide prevention officers“, bringing the total to 22. Currently there are usually 2 on the bridge at a given time.

No amount of suicide prevention will stop those who are committed to their exit. A couple of days ago in Oakland a man in a wheelchair blew himself up with a pipe bomb inside a clinic. “We are living in a time in which some of us have given up on life, some of us have some mental issues that need treatment. I see it too often now.”
