Many Americans have been concerned about economics or healthcare when deciding on who to vote for tomorrow in the election, but in Vermont you must also consider whether or not you want assisted suicide to be legalized.
Peter Shumlin, the democrat candidate for Governor of Vermont was quoted by the Death with Dignity Action Fund as stating:
As Governor, I will strongly champion death with dignity legislation. I have been a sponsor of this legislation for multiple years and I have a track record of bringing people together to get tough things done. ...As Governor, I would make this a top priority and in my State of the State address would ask the legislature to ...pass it prior to adjournment in 2011.
Many people decide how they will vote based on several issues, but in Vermont, voters need to reject Peter Shumlin to reject the legalization of assisted suicide.
Recent polls put Shumlin ahead of the Republican candidate Brian Dubie.
