Dr. Anna Pou: "The grand jury did the right thing"

Louisiana physician-blogger Michael Hebert with his thoughts on the Anna Pou story:

One final question the reader may ask: Do I think Dr. Pou did it?

I don’t know Dr. Pou personally, but I do find it difficult to believe that a doctor educated in the United States, knowing the law as all doctors do, would have tried to do something like this. It would have been much easier for her to simply sedate the patients with the aim to relieve pain. She had no obligation to kill them, and, in fact, with sufficient morphine on hand to keep pain at bay, no need to kill them either. She could have managed them to to the point of natural death without having to make such a terrible decision. So on balance, I would have to say probably not.
