(UP)—A doctor told million's of Britons on a television program Tuesday night that he deliberately let two of his patients die in mercy killings.' The doctor, whose name was not given, appeared in a television program on mercy killing shown on Britain's commercial network. He said he let them die because they were too sick to be saved and were suffering terrible pain. He said it was his personal opinion that "undoubtedly in certain circumstances a doctor should end life to prevent pain" and that "I have done so." "The first was the result of a birth...I just put it on one side and his thorax and lungs blown away but .was conscious. Without the slightest hesitation I gave him a heavy dose of morphia."
