For most of us, Question 2 is personal.
We see this ballot measure — which would allow some gravely ill people to get medication with which to end their lives — through the lens of our own experience.

Here is a wife who saw her terminally ill husband live far longer, and with more fulfillment, than doctors predicted. She will vote no.
