    You should consider voting yes [on Question 2] for the following reasons:
    [1]You feel that patient autonomy trumps all other values
    [2]You feel that a doctor should be allowed to effectively make the decision to kill a patient
    For a doctor to be given the power to intentionally kill someone, even with their consent, is not something you should be comfortable with. If I were a Massachusetts resident I would vote “no”.

    What’s your take on Q 2?

    Get thirsty, drink.
