death by war[edit]

would military or civilian death from wartime activities be included in unnatural death? Hmains 16:06, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

death by execution and lynching[edit]

would deaths by execution and lynching be included in unnatural deaths? Hmains 18:22, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

I would think all the examples you listed would count. Old age is "natural"; I believe most diseases count as natural; therefore, if any external force results in death, or some external force causes injury that leads to a condition (such as an infection) that causes death, then those are all "unnatural".

Differs from "Unnnatural Death" only by case of D[edit]

It seems to me "Unnatural Death" (Novel)--or whatever is customary--should be used instead of a case-sensitive difference, as currently. The English term and the Dorothy L Sayers novel are not sufficiently distinguished.

Issue: "Unnatural Death" vs. Dorothy L Sayers' Lord Peter Wimsey novel "Unnatural Death".

(Sorry: Insufficient Wiki-knowledge to tell what's right here.)

Death by Abortion?[edit]

Are parents of aborted babies really given a death certificate stating the cause of death was abortion? If not, then abortion should perhaps be removed from the list of death by unnatural causes. Furthermore, having "abortion" on this list is controversial, there may not yet be consensus on whether or not unborn babies are considered "alive". Thus, if they may not be alive, then they could not "die". In any case, this article is definitely not the place for this debate, and it may be best to avoid it altogether by removing "abortion" as an unnatural cause of death until that debate is settled. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ouizardus (talkcontribs) 13:19, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

Examples[edit]

Would this article benefit from examples of each kind of death? References to a definition of unnatural death would be helpful Zsj.engl300 (talk) 22:42, 28 February 2017 (UTC)
