British Doctors Group Will Keep Opposing Assisted Suicide After Doctors Oppose Killing Patients

The cause of assisted dying in Britain hit a speed bump late last month. After surveying its members, the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) declared that it will continue to oppose a change in the law.

Only about 13% of the RCGP’s 50,000 members responded. Of these, 47% said that the RCGP should oppose a change in the law on assisted dying; 40% supported a change; and 11% supported neutrality. (About 2% abstained.)

The RCGP’s Council agreed that the survey results did not support a change in the College’s existing position on assisted dying. It also decided that it will not review its position for at least five years unless there are significant developments.

Professor Martin Marshall, the RCGP’s Chair, commented: “As the UK’s largest medical Royal College it is important that we engage in debate and listen to what our members have to say on wide-ranging issues affecting GPs and their patients…

“The role of the College now is to ensure that patients receive the best possible palliative and end of life care.”

A spokesman for Dying in Dignity, the UK’s leading lobby for assisted suicide, pointed out that the combined vote of doctors who supported a change and doctors who supported neutrality was 51%. “Not only is it wrong for the RCGP to fail to represent the wide range of perspectives held by their members, it is inexcusable to continue to obstruct the introduction of a tried and tested healthcare option so consistently supported by their patients,” he said.

THE GOOD NEWS

SALVATION

Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. SALVATION IS BY FAITH ALONE & FAITH IS BELIEVING WHAT GOD SAYS.

  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
