Assisted suicide and euthanasia pose some of the greatest challenges to those of us dedicated to protecting life from conception to natural death. Below you will find the 2021 version of Massachusetts’ assisted suicide bill, H.2381, and resources laying out the best arguments and talking points for opposing it. For those interested in the legislative history of assisted suicide (formerly known as physician/doctor-assisted suicide) in Massachusetts and elsewhere, there are archived print resources and archived videos to review.
