Boston’s Cardinal O’Malley Very Happy That Assisted Suicide Bill Failed
Question 2 on the Massachusetts ballot may have been one of the most controversial questions ever asked, and one man of faith is very happy it didn’t make it any further.
The proposed bill would have allowed people to get a prescription from a doctor, and take their own life at home.
Of the three major questions asked on the 2012 ballot, assisted suicide failed. This was much to the joy of Cardinal O’Malley, who called it a ‘terrible assault on human life’. He thanked all of his fellow Catholics for helping to get the bill to fail.
