Suicide Predators, Internet, and the 1st Amendment
Our guest: Mike Gonzales
“Suzanne Gonzales Suicide Prevention Act”
Suzy Gonzales was a bubbly nineteen-year-old with an infectious smile and a wonderful and quirky sense of humor. She was the kind of person who would go out of her way to help others. She was bright and intelligent, and always brought a smile to her many friends. She loved to set her own style and was not afraid to march to her own beat. She was known as the girl wearing glasses with no lenses and hand-painted colorful shoes, and riding a red scooter carrying the stuffed two-headed cat she made herself. She loved polka-dot dresses and ska music, and she was a joy and bright light to be around.

Suzy was a national Hispanic scholar finalist and earned a four-year, full-ride scholarship to Florida State University. She easily made friends wherever she went and always applied herself fully to whatever she was doing.

While away at college Suzy became depressed. Instead of turning to family or professionals for help, she turned to online suicide groups which helped her end her life.

Suzy's family has established a Website to honor their daughter's memory.

In the United States, a person dies by suicide every 15 minutes, claiming more than 36,000 lives each year. Suicide is the second leading cause of death for college students, and the third for youth ages 15-24, with adolescent depression -undiagnosed, untreated or both- as the number one cause.

The Out of the Darkness Campus walks are 3-5 mile walks taking place in communities across the country, with the proceeds benefitting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). To learn more about AFSP and suicide prevention, please visit

This savings allows PJI to take on many cases. PJI also does not focus on just those cases that are likely to go to the Supreme Court.

PJI also works hard to maximize its resources by making sure its case updates and newsletters are sent only when warranted.

Exodus International
Mission & Doctrine
Mission Statement: Mobilizing the body of Christ to minister grace and truth to a world impacted by homosexuality.
Doctrinal Statement: We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the inspired Word Of God, the final authority for doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction for right living. We believe in one God, existing eternally in three Persons:Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, fully man and fully God, only begotten Son of the Father. he was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and lived a sinless life. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, buried and rose physically from the dead. He ascended to the right hand of the Father and will come again in power and glory.

We believe that faith alone in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord frees us from the mastery of sin, and its consequences of death and eternal damnation. He assumed the penalty of death Himself, and enables us to live out of His resurrected life unto eternity. We believe the Holy Spirit carries out this work of renewal in our lives, empowering us to grow in loving union with our Heavenly Father and to walk in obedience to His will. We believe that the Church of Jesus Christ is formed of all those who know Him as their Savior and Lord, regardless of denominational beliefs.
