    A recent article in a respected British newspaper led with the headline
    ‘Atheist doctors more likely to hasten death’ which ruffled my feathers
    in exasperation. The phrase ‘to hasten death’ seems almost synonymous
    with euthanasia, which are acts that are distinct from end-of-life care. What were
    the background justification and the findings from the original study? They are
    well worth reading in full (Seale, 2010).
