AMA uncovered: dud ‘review’

AMA uncovered: dud ‘review’

By Neil Francis of

In 2016, the Australian Medical Association (AMA) reviewed its policy on ‘euthanasia and physician assisted suicide’ and the AMA executive set its policy as opposed to assisted dying. Neil Francis provides evidence to show that the only “justifiable” position the AMA executive could have taken was to declare the AMA neutral towards lawful assisted dying — a matter of individual conscience for its member doctors. Francis also poses sixteen questions that Australian doctors may well ask of the AMA executive.

This analysis by Neil Francis has been endorsed by Dr David Leaf, the NSW Convenor of Doctors for Assisted Dying Choice.
