About

No Suicide Massachusetts was originally formed in 2012 to defeat Question 2, a ballot measure which would have legalized the practice of prescribing so-called “terminally ill” patients a lethal dose of drugs, putting Massachusetts Residents at risk of death by medical mistakes, abuse, and coercion.

 

Medical professionals, disability right advocates, patients,  hospice providers, ethicists, and people of any or no faith have formed No Suicide Massachusetts to (1) oppose the inherently discriminatory law and practice of assisted suicide, (2) prevent  the medical mistakes, abuse, and coercion attendant upon legalization, (3) fight suicide contagion, and (4) demand and promote meaningful patient care through expanding home care, palliative care, hospice services, and end-of-life planning awareness. No Suicide Massachusetts is committed to protecting the people of Massachusetts from the threat of legalized assisted suicide.
