Father Pacholczyk's Op-Ed is particularly timely because Massachusetts may be the next American state to legalize assisted suicide in a vote expected in early November. I would have missed the article had it not been for Dr. Eric Chevlen sending me an email this morning saying that Fr. Tad mentioned my case at the end of his Op-Ed.

 The issue of assisted suicide is like a bad penny. Its advocates do not give up. In 1997 I was invired to appear be a Massachusetts state senate judiciary committee as the studied a euthanasia bill before the legislature. It was unsuccessful then. The latest attempt may succeed. I urge all citizens of good will to reject assisted suicide on November 6th
