"We are not trained to kill."

Found this startling report from Prolife Philippines:

  PORTLAND, May 23, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A new study shows that the psychological effects of "helping patients to die" can be severe for doctors participating in euthanasia and physician assisted suicide (PAS). The report by the group Physicians for Compassionate Care Education Foundation (PCCEF) gleans data from a number of sources articles in independent medical journals, legislative investigations and the public press.

The study is among the first of its kind and says the effects on doctors of the inversion of their traditional medical function can be "substantial".
