On Nov. 6, Massachusetts voters will be asked to vote on three questions along with the state and federal political races.
Question 2 asks whether doctors should be allowed to prescribe medication to end life.
"This proposed law would allow a physician licensed in Massachusetts to prescribe medication, at a terminally ill patient’s request, to end that patient’s life," the Massachusetts Secretary of State's website says.
According to the website a "yes" vote would allow for the prescription of life-ending medication.
A "no" vote would make no change to the current law and keep the practice illegal.
