''Two reasons motivate my willingness to be a DWDV Ambassador. Firstly, and obviously, voluntary assisted dying is powerfully justified by some of the rare exigencies of life, namely, pain or suffering without possible relief. I've observed such situations. The second is the important public expression of the fact that medical practitioners, like me, can be found who also see voluntary assisted dying as ethically valid and who support legislation of voluntary assisted dying. This view is contrary to the often-held view that medical professions are opposed to legalisation''.
