| All the polls (and common sense) show that nurses are viewed by the general public as the most creditable people when it comes to doctor prescribed suicide. Yes, doctors are next.

I know there are many, many wonderful nurses out there who are just as concerned. Testimony on DPS is coming up at the State House. I am hoping that will be a good vehicle for nurses to organize.

NURSES OPPOSED TO DPS
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 2012, 9:30 - 11:30
MASSACHUSETTS CITIZENS FOR LIFE OFFICE
SCHRAFFT CENTER, 529 MAIN STREET, CHARLESTOWN
DPS threatens pharmacists because there is no conscience protection for them. The legislature just announced the March 6th hearings. There isn't time for a separate meeting for pharmacists, so we are inviting them to meet with you. The presentations about the DPS and how to form a group will be the same. Then we'll split up to actually form the groups.
Please invite all other nurses and pharmacists you know.
RSVP: Press "reply" or call 617-242-4199 X230 . Please let us know even if you can't come so that we can keep you informed. I'm looking forward to seeing you on Saturday. Anne
