Election 2012: Death with Dignity
Massachusetts voters will decide whether terminally ill adults have the right to end their lives when they go to the polls on Nov. 6.
If passed, the ballot measure, called the Death with Dignity Act, would make Massachusetts the third state to allow terminally ill patients to take their own lives. Callie Crossley discusses the ballot measure on Boston Public Radio.
