Girl kills herself with help, encouragement from ‘assisted suicide’ website

    On May 22, 2019, Jackie Bieber found her daughter Shawn Shatto on her bedroom floor unresponsive and cold. She attempted CPR but in vain


    July 10, 2020 (Euthanasia Prevention Coalition) — On May 22, 2019, Jackie Bieber found her daughter Shawn Shatto on her bedroom floor unresponsive and cold. She attempted CPR but in vain.

    Initially she did not realize that Shawn had died by a suicide. What she would soon learn was that her daughter, who had been dealing with depression and anxiety, was provided lethal directions and encouraged to die by suicide through an assisted suicide website.

    An article written by Jennifer Passmore, published by Moms.com, explains:

    Shawn had been dealing with depression and anxiety for years, and had been seeing a therapist and took medication. Originally, Bieber didn't think her daughter took her own life. That is, until she had found several disturbing things on her daughter's cell phone, including messages from a website that teaches people how to commit suicide.

    Shatto's aunt, Elizabeth Hoffman said, "They were cheering her on to the finish line of a suicide." On the post, various people were telling her what kind of drugs to mix in order to kill herself. Then they had the audacity to wish her 'good luck' and 'safe travels.' Bieber believes if it was not for that website, her daughter may still be alive today.

    That's horrible.

    Could the owners of that site be legally liable for her death ?

    You’d think so. They are trying to pass Shawn’s Law now.



    So far, Shawn's Law has passed the House, and is now in the Senate. If you are interested in helping in getting this law passed, you can call your local senator and ask them to vote in favor of the law.

    Shawn's law is a proactive way to protect people from assisted suicide and websites that instruct and encourage suicide.


    The Euthanasia Prevention Coalition urges the Pennsylvania Senate to pass Shawn's law and Governor Wolf to sign it into law.

    Shawn Shatto is not the first person who was struggling with depression and anxiety to come across an assisted suicide website that provided instructions and encouraged suicide.


    Don't believe the assisted suicide lobby when they say that suicide and assisted suicide are different, when the assisted suicide lobby is also involved with peddling suicide.

    If you or someone you know is contemplating suicide, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

    I don't get this. Why are they urging people to commit suicide?

    They believe it’s a right.

    Where do you even start with something like this? I'm not going to promote my beliefs here but the wishing her "safe travels" is chilling. They don't even know what they've done.

    I think they are very aware of what they are doing. The culture of death.
