AID IN DYING SPLITS MSSNY — A disputed survey has caused dissension among several members of the state's largest medical society, as it tries to grapple with one of the most sensitive issues a doctor can face. The Medical Society of the State of New York, which has roughly 30,000 members, announced last year it would poll doctors on the question of aid-in-dying, often referred to as medically assisted suicide. The survey came as the Legislature considered allowing prescriptions of lethal medications to patients with terminal illnesses. The society has long opposed aid in dying, otherwise known as physician-assisted suicide.
— MSSNY's own survey was emailed to approximately 10,000 people. Roughly 3,300 people opened the email and somewhere between 300 and 450 completed the survey. That relatively low response rate was boosted by groups - both for and against - forwarding the survey to sympathetic colleagues, hoping to juice the numbers. MSSNY put a halt to that and even though only a few hundred ended up completing the survey, the damage was done and MSSNY, citing that fact, has not released the results of the survey.
