About

The Massachusetts Alliance Against Doctor-Prescribed Suicide was originally formed in 2012 to defeat Question 2, a ballot measure which would have legalized the practice to prescribing so-called “terminally ill” patients a lethal dose of drugs rather than the care they need to live with dignity.

 

After spearheading the defeat of Question 2, members of this loose alliance composed of medical professionals, disability right advocates, patients,  hospice providers, ethicists, and people of any or no faith who value the lives of their neighbors and friends realized that a more permanent presence was needed to protect the people of Massachusetts from the threat posed by Doctor-Prescribed Suicide.
