The Massachusetts Committee Against Physician Assisted Suicide has just released its first television ad opposing Question 2 on the November 6 state ballot. Question 2 would legalize assisted suicide in Massachusetts.
The first TV ad focuses on three of the biggest flaws with Question 2:
- There is no requirement for patients requesting a lethal prescription to have a mental health evaluation beforehand
- There is no requirement for a patient to notify their family members before they commit suicide
- There is no requirement to have a doctor present when the patient takes the lethal prescription
