Suicide Prevention

There’s a meme running around that preventing suicide is somehow interfering with natural selection. I’m not going to give anyone a full science lecture on natural selection or suicide, but I just wanted to say that if you’re one of those people, you’re wrong and don’t understand evolutionary biology as well as you think you do.

    While we’re at it, let’s not give medicine to those with life threatening diseases, administer care to those who have been physically harmed, or provide any sort of safety instructions for those in potentially hazardous environments. Evolution will sort ’em out.
