By Anne Fox, President of Massachusetts Citizens for Life
The current legislation seeking to legalize doctor-prescribed suicide probably wouldn't have passed the Massachusetts legislature this session except that the pro-death lobby, Compassion and Choices, has a diabolical new plan. They already have the case in court trying to say that doctor-prescribed suicide is legal in Massachusetts. They have the money to put the issue on the ballot in 2020. Now they have another clever attempt, which has a good chance.
They are going to towns in the state to get the city council, town meeting, whatever is the governing body, to pass resolutions supporting DPS.
They can pick the towns where they did the best in 2012. When they get enough towns, they can go to the legislature and present the results to prove the people of the state want DPS and force the legislature to pass it.
They have already gotten the resolution passed in Provincetown and Cambridge. Now they are working in Amherst and Northampton.
If Question 2 won big in your town or city in 2012, please start monitoring things closely so we can nip the next move in the bud. You know how effective this doctor team can be.
Evil is endlessly persistent.
