Yes, suicide or attempted suicide is illegal in all 50 states.

In Michigan there is no law regarding attempted suicide, it is only illegal in Michigan if the attempted suicide was successful.

NO , Please cite MCL codes for these " laws"

No. Ohio has a law that specifically prohibits assisted suicide. As of the early 1990's no state in the USA has a punitive law on the books for either suicide or attempted suicide.

No. Suicide and attempted suicide no longer are crimes in Illinois. However, it is a crime to induce another to commit suicide.

No, there's no MA law against suicide. Attempted suicide might be illegal indirectly, such as jumping in front of a commuter train.

It is not against the law to attempt suicide in the UK. Suicide and attempted suicide was a crime in England and Wales until 1961. Attempted suicide was (equivalent to) a misdemeanor but suicide was punished by the loss of the dead person's estate. The Church of England may still deny ordinary burial rites to certain suicide victims. However, please don't attempt suicide.

There does not appear to be a Kentucky Statute that defines suicide or attempted suicide as a crime. KRS 216.300-308 deals with assisted suicide which is a crime in Kentucky.

Most states classify suicide as a crime. Although it is rare, attempted suicide cases can be prosecuted.

Suicide is not against the law, as there can be no human punishment for someone who has successfully committed it. Attempted suicide will not bring criminal charges against you, but you will most likely be taken in for psychological evaluation whether you want to be or not, and can be held until they feel you are no longer a threat to yourself or anyone else.....which could be days, weeks, months and sometimes years.

Suicide is not illegal. Assisting suicide is illegal, and it may not be a qualifying cause of death as far as your insurance is concerned, but it is not illegal.

No. As of the early 90's, punitive laws dealing with suicide have been removed from all state and federal jurisdictions.

While attempted suicide is not technically against the law in Tennessee, there are laws in place regarding attempted suicide. It is not a crime, therefore, it isn't something which a person could go to jail for. However, there are laws in place in which the person could be committed to a mental institution for a psychological evaluation and possible treatment if they are still deemed to be a danger to themselves or to someone else.

Maryland has a law that specifically prohibits assistedsuicide. Md. Code §3-102. Euthanasia is prohibited in Maryland under the general homicide laws.A law punishing those who commit or attempt to commit suicide no longer exists is any state, including Maryland.

Technically yes, it is illegal. Though it would be highly unlikely for a person to be persecuted for such an act. You are generally seen as mentally ill and in need of treatment.

There is nothing in Ohio's criminal code about suicide. You can be hospitalized against your will if you are suicidal.

On reading the Crimes Act, it appears that your own attempted suicide is not illegal, but if you aid, abet, counsel etc another to do so, and they do, then you may be liable (s179).Also if you make a suicide pact with someone else then you may be liable (s180).

Suicide is not against the law in the UK. It was until the 1961 Suicide Act which legalised it and introduced laws which dealt with assistance of suicide. Prior to 1961 suicide was illegal in the UK and was punishable by prison and fines (but not death!)
