Faced with a terminal diagnosis, when all options for treatment have been exhausted, New Yorkers deserve the full range of medically appropriate options for care at the end of life.
New York’s Medical Aid in Dying Act (S3151/A2383) would authorize medical aid in dying for terminally ill adults with less than six months to live and found by two doctors to be mentally capable to make this medical decision. The law would give eligible patients the option to request a prescription for medication they can take to shorten a difficult, painful dying process.
Come learn about the legislation, ask questions, and learn what’s next for the medical aid-in-dying campaign in New York State.
