POLL: Should Massachusetts Allow Assisted Suicide?

It's one question that voters will decide in November.

 

Should terminally ill patients be allowed to receive lethal drugs at their request?

That is one question Massachusetts voters will be expected to consider when they hit the voting booth in November. The initiative, called "Death with Dignity," received enough signatures to be placed on the ballot in November, according to the state's attorney general.

The proposal in Massachusetts would allow individuals who have been diagnosed with an illness that will cause death within six months to obtain medication to self-administer to end their life.

If passed, Massachusetts would join Oregon, Washington and Montana as the only states that allow assisted suicide.

WoW, guess ONE vote does make a difference! THE next question that needs answers is which is more important: Jobs or Education? Know more then a few graduates who can't find work and that they have had to create more debt via advanced schooling! Those school "LOANS" cannot be paid off working at Starbucks and they will be taken out of Social Security payments!

Should MASSACHUSETTS opt out of ObamaCare? Will that spare seniors being crippled via 3.8% Obama Tax for Medicare/ObamaCare on home sales over $500,000?
