Emirates
24/7 reports that a doctors’ group in the United Arab Emirates has called for
euthanasia”. Apparently they have in mind patients who are “clinically dead”.
They argue that this already happens in many other countries. There may be some
confusion in the local media, and perhaps amongst the doctors, about the
distinction between euthanasia and withdrawing burdensome treatment. In any
case, the Dubai Health Authority refused their request, saying that terminating
a patient’s life is illegal. A spokesman, Dr Ramadan Ibrahim, said: “The Authority has notified the doctors that their
request is not accepted even in cases of brain or clinical death.” ~ Emirates 24/7,
