Details of BMA assisted dying debate on 29 June.
Since that time the RCGP and RCP have come out strongly against euthanasia - so the BMA position is now out of touch with most doctors in this country and also with the World Medical Association.
For more background see the following:
Michael Wilks, chair of the ethics committee, is also chairing the ARM again, and may use his considerable influence and position to maintain the status quo.
