Assisted Suicide: What Does Your Vote Mean?

Find out what your vote on Question 2 will mean.

On Nov. 6, Massachusetts voters will be asked to vote on three questions along with the state and federal political races.

Question 2 is regarding whether doctors should be allowed to prescribe medication to end life.

"This proposed law would allow a physician licensed in Massachusetts to prescribe medication, at a terminally ill patient’s request, to end that patient’s life," the Massachusetts Secretary of State's website says.

According to the website a "yes" vote would allow for the prescription of life-ending medication.

A "no" vote would make no change to the current law and keep the practice illegal.

What are your thoughts on Question 2? Let us know in the comments.

A "YES" vote means that everyone can live according to their own choice...A "NO" vote means those who are against this bill will control the choice of those who are for the bill. A "YES"vote includes everyone...A "NO" vote excludes some... I ALWAYS VOTE FOR FREEDOM OF CHOICE"! I ALWAYS VOTE FOR FREEDOM OF CHOICE!
