MA Voters To Decide Right-To-Die
It would only be the third state to allow physician-assisted suicide
â€œRight-to-dieâ€ advocates have mounted a high-profile initiative campaign in what might seem to be unlikely territory: heavily Catholic Massachusetts.
On Election Day, voters in the Bay State will consider whether to approve the â€œDeath With Dignity Act,â€ a measure that would make Massachusetts just the third state in the country to formally approve physician-assisted suicide. The proposal, identified as Question 2 on the ballot, is nearly identical to laws passed in Oregon in 1994 and in Washington in 2008.
