Most Doctors Would Help Terminally Ill Die: AMA

November 28, 2016

(The Australian) – A majority of doctors would help terminally ill people die if ­voluntary euthanasia became law, a landmark survey of GPs and medical specialists by the AMA has revealed. The Australian Medical ­Association will today unveil a policy rejecting euthanasia and doctor-assisted suicide, but which acknowledges for the first time that right-to-die laws are ­“ultimately a matter for society and government”.
