Desperate hyperbole from opponents of VAD
Last week, Alex Schadenberg wrote—and Paul Russel republished —another nonsense article, this time about medical associations going neutral on assisted dying. They opine that there is no such thing as neutrality. And start out by getting their facts wrong… again. They claimed that the Oregon Medical association is an “assisted suicide lobby” group. Had they bothered to check the rudimentary facts before sounding off, they would have known that the Oregon Medical Association remains neutral toward assisted dying. It reconfirmed its neutral stance as recently as early this month. It does not hold a ‘supportive’ stance. Schadenberg and Russell then desperately argue that you can only support or oppose assisted dying. There is no neutral, they say.
