I would argue that she needs help, not jail time. This isn't a Jack Kevorkian case. She tried to take her own life too.

We don't know enough about this case to make the kind of judgement you just made. I can't believe you call yourself a Christian. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Ya, what exactly do you think they could do here to make an example of her?? She freaking tried to kill herself. This woman won't receive jail time and she shouldn't. But she will receive extended treatment.

Seriously Calvinist? You are far to harsh and un-empathetic. What is this Nazi-Germany? Make an example of her.... eesh!

If she assisted someone in committing suicide she needs to be prosecuted. I value life.

Obviously, she has some issues if she tried to do herself in, and no--we shouldn't just lock her in a cell and throw away the key--she needs help. But she also needs to pay for killing the guy.

The guy who also wanted to die? As if punishing the poor woman will bring the man back anyway. She needs help, and in jail she will receive very little help at all.
