Assisted Suicide Measure Defeated

November 06, 2012

Opponents of assisted suicide won an important victory in Massachusetts on November 6. Question 2, a ballot initiative to legalize assisted suicide, was defeated 51-49 percent. Members of the Catholic Medical Association’s Worcester Guild were leaders in this critical and successful battle.

Congratulations to John Howland, M.D., and Mark Rollo, M.D., and to all who worked hard on this issue.
