Is your reading comprehension naturally that bad, or are you
Influencing the personal choice of other people is not the same thing as
as making a personal choice for yourself.
For a parallel, attempting suicide may or may not be a crime (but it is
that person's choice), but talk someone else into committing suicide,
and you can be prosecuted for manslaughter or worse.
