In this letter to the editor, Russell responds to an editorial in the December issue of Australian Family Physician which spoke out against physician aid-in-dying. Russell says that the editorial was old-fashioned & does not take into account the last 30 years of change in which patients have come to expect their doctors to listen to their views, including their opinions on euthanasia. Recent polls show that 70-80% of Australians are in favour of voluntary euthanasia.
