Chair Rosanne Meade in the Patriot Ledger
The Patriot Ledger recently met with the Question 2 Committee Chairwoman Rosanne Meade to discuss Question 2. The Patriot Ledger wrote about our efforts to educate voters about why they should vote NO on Question 2, writing: “Arguing that the measure is poorly written, lacks safeguards and ignores advances in palliative care for the dying, the main opposition group is gathering support from associations of physicians, nurses, hospice workers and people with disabilities.”
Rosanne Meade, Chair of the Committee Against Physician Assisted Suicide, was quoted in the article saying, “I really believe it’s a flawed document. We’re dealing with very complicated life and death issues.” Rosanne then went on to discuss another of Question 2’s flaws: the inability of doctors to accurate predict a 6-month terminal prognosis. “You have to be told you have only six months to live, but I have yet to meet a physician who can do that with any accuracy,” stated Meade.
We’ve discussed before why such a prognosis is nearly impossible to accurately predict and is one of the many flaws in Question 2.
