Massachusetts assisted suicide bill H 1998 is likely dead.

Assisted Suicide bill H 1998 in Massachusetts appears to be dead.

The Associated Press is reporting that:
On Tuesday the Public Health Committee recommended the bill be sent to a study committee, a common way of essentially ensuring no action will be taken before the end of the formal session.
On November 6, 2012 Massachusetts citizens defeated Ballot Question 2 (assisted suicide) by a vote of 51.1% to 48.9%. A close vote that indicated that the majority of Massachusetts citizens opposed the legalization of assisted suicide.

Congratulations to everyone who worked to defeat the assisted suicide bill in Massachusetts.
