Re: Why I decided to provide assisted dying: it is truly patient centred care

May I ask why my copy of the BMJ this week was enclosed in an advertisement for Healthcare Professionals for Assisted Dying (attached to a freepost envelope and membership form) and why Dr Buchan was given front page and 3 full pages for the expression of his support for physician assisted suicide? I find this portrayal of ethical debate unbalanced and unacceptable and trust that the BMJ will correct this promptly by allowing the same volume of space to those opposed to euthanasia.
