British Doctors Drop Opposition to Euthanasia

A LAW allowing doctors to help terminally ill patients to die came a step closer yesterday when the British Medical Association dropped its opposition.

Doctors voted narrowly to alter the BMA’s stance, opening the way for a renewed campaign to legalise assisted suicide and euthanasia.

The motion was rejected resoundingly after a debate in which it was said that images of foetuses “walking” in the womb was insufficient scientific evidence to force a change in the law.

Insufficient Scientific Evidence??? What more Evidence is needed?
