Assisted suicide, end of life, aid in dying
The new push to legalize physician assisted suicide is a bad idea. It violates the Hippocratic tradition, dating back 2400 years. It impairs the trust relationship between doctor and patients, and would detract from modern efforts to improve palliative care and hospice. Finally, it is contrary to clear principles from the God's Word.
