Last week they met to discuss it; this week they announced tacit approval of it. I'm so glad they devoted so much time to such an important issue. SHEESH!
Here's the excerpt:
Doctors have voted to drop their opposition to changes to the law which would allow terminally ill patients to be helped to die. The British Medical Association conference said it should end its current stance against euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide. When the BMA discussed the issue earlier this week, doctors spoke powerfully for and against change. But delegates backed a neutral position at Thursday's vote.
This is a SLIPPERY SLOPE - and they're already sliding down it. I posted on this last week. I wrote that allowing doctors employed by the state to euthanize patients is a fundamental conflict of interest. WHY? Because the state benefits from the DEATH of the patient; in fact, the state benefits TWICE: first, they save on medical expenses; and second, they save on pension payments.
I know of no more powerful argument for the personalization/privatization of health and pension benefits.
