Assisted Suicide: What Does Your Vote Mean?

Find out what your vote on Question 2 will mean.

On Nov. 6, Wayland votes will join Massachusetts voters in being asked to vote on three questions along with the state and federal political races.

Question 2 is regarding whether doctors should be allowed to prescribe medication to end life.

"This proposed law would allow a physician licensed in Massachusetts to prescribe medication, at a terminally ill patient’s request, to end that patient’s life," the Massachusetts Secretary of State's website says.

According to the website a "yes" vote would allow for the prescription of life-ending medication.

A "no" vote would make no change to the current law and keep the practice illegal.
