Physicians Say No to Euthanasia

According to the survey conducted among the doctors of the Royal College of Physicians it was found that they were against the proposed legislation of Euthanasia. //It was found that about 73% of the doctors were against this law. Lord Joffe's issued a bill for assisted dying where it states that the doctors should be given rights to prescribe drugs that could end the sufferings of the terminally ill person. But the physicians of the royal colleges said that an alternative for terminally ill patients would be better palliative care.

Five thousand doctors responded to the Royal College of Physicians poll. Palliative care services should be extended to improve their life. As a result 24 palliative care experts signed a letter to state that doctors should not resort to medically assisted dying among terminally ill patients. The doctors, headed by Sam Ahmedza, professor of palliative care at University of Sheffield Royal Hallamshire Hospital said that such patients should not be thought as pressure on one’s resources and happiness. They should not be allowed to develop the feeling that they are a burden on the family. But Deborah Annetts, chief executive of Dignity in Dying said that the doctors were given only 48 hours to respond and hence some doctors were unable to represent their views.
