Speak Up, We Can't Hear You

Jocelyn Downie

Abstract


The author supports the lead authors’ call for physicians to be open about their support for legalized assisted death. Citing evidence from Canada and internationally, the author demonstrates that support for euthanasia is growing in the medical community, and that many physicians would like to see legislative changes to support this trend. The commentary concludes with a call for physicians to educate themselves so that they can advocate more effectively on behalf of their patients.
