CMDFA Response to Euthanasia

The Christian Medical and Dental Fellowship of Australia has significantly contributed to the area of medical ethics. This article is written by men and women who are Christians working in the medical field with expert knowledge, experience and a Christian mindset that can properly inform the public and leaders of the church on the issues surrounding medical ethics.

“Moral opposition to both euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide has been a feature of  both the Hippocratic and the Judeo-Christian tradition from earliest times. This is particularly striking in view of the commitment of both traditions to the relief of suffering and care of the dying. We acknowledge the power of the arguments for both practices based on compassion, but believe that even more powerful counter-arguments lead us as Christians and doctors to continue to oppose their legalization.”
