NEWS CENTER Maine Pulse Polls from June 4 and 5 are consistent. 80 percent of respondents support the legalization of physician assisted suicide in Maine.

As journalists, we typically keep our opinions on controversial topics to ourselves, but today I just couldn’t. For the first time in my journalism career, I did an editorial. It is about our family’s personal experience with terminal illness.

I hope you’ll watch, and please feel free to weigh-in.
