COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

Is aid in dying the same as assisted suicide? Subtle difference? https://t.co/ULCnY6wKSQ

@WilliamDale_MD @charlesornstein What about writing a prescription? Doesn't the MD write the script that the patient can use in both cases?

@judith_graham @charlesornstein My understanding is "assisted-suicide" is the MD delivering a known fatal dose of med, not just script.

.@WilliamDale_MD: "I only wrote a prescription for a gun", etc. Nice try, won't work.

@24AheadDotCom_ Many prescriptions are written containing potentially fatal doses of (pain) meds -- absolutely appropriately.

@24AheadDotCom_ The clear issue is the intent for the meds -- to relieve pain/suffering versus encouraging suicide.

.@WilliamDale_MD: you just keep telling yourself that, it'll keep you from going crazy when you realize you support doctors killing patients

@24AheadDotCom_ Are you suggesting doctors should be banned from prescribing pain medications for patients in pain?

.@WilliamDale_MD: I don't know if we're talking about the same thing. Meds for pain are OK, just not as a way to help patients off selfs.
