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.
