CALGARY, Mar 4 (LSN) – Macleans magazine reported in their March 9 issue released today, that Douglas Kinsella, a physician and ethicist at the University of Calgary conducted a nation-wide survey of 2,010 Canadian doctors on assisted suicide. The survey, which will appear in an upcoming issue of the Canadian Medical Association Journal, found that 49 per cent of physicians said they would refuse to assist in a suicide, 21 per cent agreed and the rest said they were unsure.  Of note, in the provinces with the highest rates of abortion, British Columbia and Quebec, physicians showed a much more permissive attitude towards euthanasia than their counterparts in other regions. The survey also revealed a direct correlation between a strong religious involvement and opposition to assisted suicide.
