CWN Editor's Note: In a 360-190 vote, the American Medical Association’s House of Delegates adopted a report that affirms the organization’s opposition to physician-assisted suicide. “[The report] clearly speaks the truth as to what this involves—it is directly enabling a patient to end his or her life,” said Dr. Diane Gowski. “We would not give our patients a gun or revolver ... so we should not be supplying them with lethal drugs.”
