Government-Assisted Suicide

Megan blames the government for the DC Madam's suicide:

When an unjust law makes someone's life so unendurable that they end it, I lay much of the responsibility at the foot of the law, the system that contributed. Yes, clinical depression is complicated. But suicide very often has a traumatic trigger, and it's pretty clear that the trigger here was the unnecessary prosecution of a woman who wasn't doing anything the government had any business interfering with.

We sometimes forget that the people in the glare of our media frenzies are human beings.
