The American Medical Association (AMA) has long opposed physician-assisted suicide. In 2016, the AMA began a process to reexamine the issue. A change in position could have far-reaching consequences because courts often rely on the views of medical societies in considering issues such as the constitutionality of laws banning assisted suicide. In the summer of 2018, the issue was again referred to the AMA’s Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs (CEJA). Alex Schadenberg’s recent blog post explains that the CEJA has recently issued a report recommending that the AMA retain its opposition to physician-assisted suicide. This is very good news.
