Even in 1749, in the full blaze of the philosophic movement, we find a suicide named Portier dragged through the streets of Paris with his face to the ground, hung from a gallows by his feet, and then thrown into the sewers; and the laws were not abrogated till the Revolution, which, having founded so many other forms of freedom, accorded the liberty of death. [W.E.H. Lecky, "History of European Morals," 1869]

在英国,如果达到年龄且神志清醒,自杀在法律上是犯罪行为,但如果被判定为精神失常,则不属于犯罪行为。犯罪的人被用木桩肢解,并在1823年之前被有辱人格的埋葬在公路上。 Suicide blonde (一个"亲手染过的人")首次被证明是在1921年。棒球 suicide squeeze ,是从1937年开始考证的。
