I am a bit new to this still, so be gentle! =)
Hello, I work in a hospital and very closely with physician's. Euthanasia is one of the main things doctors do NOT talk about. However some may not
speak of it, probably due to investigation of cases, although we do think of it. Of course it is unethical, and especially unmoral, but we do not like
to see our patients suffering an untimely death (especially metastatic cancer patients). Every physicians opinion vary, but it definitely is a hard
choice for those who care about there patients as people, rather than a paycheck. I think that this is a unique change in medicine for a better
benefit, after all it is a patients choice, just like signing out against medical advice (AMA).
Edit: I am studying to be an Orthopedic Trauma Surgery, and yes I do support euthanasia. A person does not deserve to suffer, unless they want too.
