If a woman drinks the sotah water and dies is her death considered a suicide since she would have known that drinking would kill her?

    @DoubleAA if someone who deserves to die actively participates in their own death, is it a suicide? If you can bring a raiyah either way you'll have a good answer – rikitikitembo Nov 26 '14 at 0:30
