    Then the various levels of government in the united states cannot legally get involved in matters of suicide, as the first amendment of the united states constitution requires a separation of church and state.

    Most people in USA are Jewish, Christian or Muslim -- all view suicide as a sin.

    None of which changes the simple fact that the united states constitution dictates a separation of church and state. If various religions and their practitioners regard the act of one ending their own existence as a sin, then the government cannot legally take any steps to prevent such, as it is a violation of that separation of church and state. The matter is as simple as that. Legally it has to take no action and let them end their own existence, as doing otherwise is unconstitutional, no different from depriving individuals of their right to a speedy trial by an impartial jury.
