Reports that the American Medical Association will consider changing its policy on doctor-assisted suicide are not fully accurate.
Despite some reports coming from its recent convention in Chicago, the American Medical Association ethics standards stand against participation in assisted suicide.
Dr. Thomas Eppes of Forrest, Virginia, a member of the Christian Medical Association, was a Virginia delegate to the convention. He tells OneNewsNow that AMA members actually approved an "eloquently stated position" that the physician is a healer.
"And that if you're in the business of doing that type of thing," says Eppes, referring to assisted suicide, "you're violating the code of ethics."
