Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
A woman who has attempted suicide four times has been banned from jumping into rivers, canals or onto railway lines.
Doesn’t a woman who’s tried to commit suicide four times need some psychological help – not an ABSO? And I don’t suppose that legally preventing her form jumping in rivers will stop her trying to kill herself, since I don’t expect that she think’s she’ll survive to be prosecuted.
