Liberal group doesn't speak for most nurses

Hippocratic OathOhio nurses are being asked to fight against assisted suicide within their own peer group.

Stephanie Krider of Ohio Right to Life tells OneNewsNow the Ohio Nurses Association has taken a step backward in patient care by voting in favor of Medical Aid in Dying, a measure supporting doctor-assisted suicide. She calls it part of a dangerous movement.

"Typically these advocates for essentially assisted suicide move in by working with doctors and nurses and other medical professionals in trying to persuade them that there is a benefit to hastening the death of their patients," she explains.

The theory is if they can gain the support of medical worker groups, then they can successfully pursue legalization through legislation or a referendum. But Krider says the Ohio Nurses Association does not really represent the majority of the state's nurses.

"I think it's pretty common knowledge that the Nurses Association and other associations like it are just led by liberal leadership who will recruit the people they need … to take votes like this, so I don't think that your average nurse in Ohio is really even keyed in to what the Nurses Association is doing on this front," she submits.

Ohio Right to Life points out that nurses are ethically obligated to provide care, including pain management, until a patient's natural death, so the pro-life group is urging them to contact the Association and voice their objections to this vote.
