Suicide lowers the utility of a society, and hence is wrong and should be punished. The most appropriate punishment is entitled.

So you punish people for suicide by making them commit suicide?

An eye for an eye.

This makes...no sense whatsoever.

Um...how is that eye for an eye? Eye for an eye would signify that the action involved actions against another person, but suicide doesn't fit that.

Agreed; that is more honorable. If they fail to comply within the time limit, they'll be forced to watch Dr. Phil until they do the deed.

Also, people should stop nitpicking; we are looking for reasonable accuracy, not some identical twin cloning program. What else would be a fair compensation to someone inflicting the crime of suicide on self?

- It's not really an eye for an eye is it! If the attempted suicide succeeded, then there are no punishments on the dead. If it failed, then there was no life taken to even warrant a retribution.
