Another independent poll released this week showed winning support for the Massachusetts Death with Dignity initiative which will appear on the state’s November ballot. Tuesday’s poll conducted by Suffolk University and 7News, demonstrated 2/3 of likely voters would vote yes on the Death with Dignity initiative. The poll question had the same wording as what will appear on the November ballot:

Question #2 is the Prescribing Medication to End Life Proposed Law. A YES VOTE would enact the proposed law allowing a physician licensed in Massachusetts to prescribe medication, at the request of a terminally-ill patient meeting certain conditions, to end that person’s life. A NO VOTE would make no change in existing laws. At this point would you vote yes or no?

Yes………………………………….. 64%
No ………………………………….. 27%
Undecided…………………………. 10%

With just seven weeks before the general election, this poll echoes others indicating Bay Staters want more legal and safe options at the end of their lives.
