A day at the Royal college of physicians.

An interesting day at the royal college of physicians.
One of the topics of discussion was on ethics.
The hot topic in the United kingdoms is euthanasia at the moment.
These were international medical graduates from all the world over.
Dr Peter Trewby decided to make it interactive.
He asked for a show of hands in support of euthanasia.Seven hands in a room of around fifty candidates went up.
The next question was more interesting.
If allowed how many would be willing to administer it to a patient.
There was a pin-drop silence and not a single hand went up.
200 Brits are said to have travelled to Sweden for assisted suicide.
