Why Are Suicide Rates Climbing after Years of Decline?
After years of declines, the US suicide rate rose 24% over 15 years according to a new report from the national Centers for Disease on suicide rates in the US from 1999-2014. The suicide rate rose for everyone between the ages of 10-74.
National media like the Wall Street Journal and CNN speculated that the economic downturn, drugs and lack of mental health resources could be factors in the 24% increase.
However, one huge factor was totally ignored: the legalization and promotion of physician-assisted suicide.
