Is suicide technically self-defense because you are killing the person who wants to kill you?

    If people who kill themselves are trying to kill their 'self', as in ego, perhaps that's the case. Is that what you are saying?

    No, it's aiding the killer.

    Suicide is not any self defense in any way

    If any person is killing you and you killed him then it will be self defense and you will not treated as the criminal.

  • No. Suicide is a coping mechanism. That said, not all coping mechanisms (including suicide) are healthy, successful, or result in self-defense.

    Interesting argument...... the flaw is not in the killing..... it is in the false hope and belief that suicide is going to make any improvement.

    Similar to the lady who murdered her dad and mom, and pleaded, as an orphan, for mercy from the judge.
