To Board: Assisted suicide "kills the very person under the physician's care"

To: DLI BSD Medical Examiners
Subject: Position Statement No 20

To whom it may concern,

Please vacate position statement no. 20 as assisted suicide is neither legal, consistent with established American Medical Association statements, the Hippocratic oath, puts the vulnerable and elderly at risk, and kills the very person under the physician’s care.

Respectfully submitted,
Samuel J. Reck, MD
