Stop "Committing" Suicide

People “commit” crimes. Suicide is not (or should not be) a crime. It is a choice. 
Sometimes people kill themselves. Suicide is the act of killing yourself. 
We will not eliminate the stigma surrounding suicide by referring to those who kill themselves, or attempt to, as criminals, and labeling suicide a crime will not deter it.
Instead of saying, “He committed suicide.” let us say, “He killed himself.” 
No more euphemisms.
