“Yes, because it’s the patient’s right to know; it’s their life.”

“Yes, always. I’m going into the medical profession and I think honesty is really, really important with the patient.”

“Yeah, because if the patient wants to do something before the end of their life, they should know if they have long enough to do it.”

“Of course they should. It’s the patient’s life that’s at stake.”
