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).
