Faced with a terminal diagnosis, Hawai‘i residents deserve the full range of options for care at the end of life, including medical aid in dying. Medical aid in dying allows terminally ill adults to get a prescription they can take to end their life peacefully. The Our Care, Our Choice Act allows terminally ill, mentally capable Hawaii residents to access medical aid in dying.

There are currently three medical aid-in-dying bills under consideration by the Hawai’i legislature. SB 899 and HB 650 are companion bills introduced and sponsored by the Kapuna Caucus; SB 442 is an identical bill sponsored by Senator Keohokalole. Read the summary of those bills here.
