[Ending life by medical means. Different attitudes among physicians than in the general population?] Medisinsk avslutning av liv. Er legenes holdninger forskjellige fra befolkningens?
TIDSSKRIFT FOR DEN NORSKE LAEGEFORENING. 1997 Mar 20; 117(8):1135-7.The paper presents the Norwegian population's attitude to euthanasia and to legal abortion in 1982, 1990 and 1995, and compares the responses given in 1995 with the attitudes of a representative sample of 1260 Norwegian physicians. The acceptance of legal abortion by the population seems to have remained constant, while the population's attitude towards euthanasia has become more liberal. Social criteria and a potential handicapped baby were less accepted as causes for abortion in 1995 than in 1990. The physicians are more liberal towards abortion and more skeptical towards euthanasia. The physicians are more reluctant, however, to accept a potential handicapped offspring as a reason for abortion. (author's) (summaries in ENG, NOR)
