"Majority medical opinion remains opposed to assisted dying and this vote is a victory for common sense." -Dr. Peter Saunders
(United Kingdom)—At their annual conference, the British Medical Association has reiterated its opposition to euthanasia.
Said Dr. Dai Samuel: "We must question what we, as doctors, stand for. I do not consider the killing of patients—whatever the reason—justified. That is murder and I cannot commit that offense."
Dr. Hamish Meldrum said, "I don't come to this [conclusion] from any strong religious view, but I do come to these views from having worked as a doctor for 40 years…where I have always felt I have been able, in almost every occasion, to support my patients when they were dying without having to actively end their lives."
