Doctors say threat of prosecution should stay over assisted suicides Doctors yesterday refused to back calls to lift the threat of prosecution from those who accompany terminally ill loved ones to overseas clinics to take their own lives. A motion discussed at the British Medical Association (BMA) conference in Liverpool urged support for a change in legislation to ensure that people travelling with a patient for an assisted death would not be subject to prosecution.
