Faced with a terminal diagnosis, Minnesota residents deserve the full range of options for care at the end of life, including medical aid in dying.
The Minnesota End-of-Life Option Act, which is modeled after the Oregon Death with Dignity Act, was introduced in the House (HF1358) and Senate (SF1352) on February 22, 2021. The bill authorizes medical aid in dying so that terminally ill adults of sound mind may request and receive from their doctor medication they may self-ingest for a peaceful death if their suffering becomes unbearable.
By a three-to-one margin, Minnesotans feel that allowing doctors to legally prescribe lethal drugs to help terminally ill patients end their own lives should be an end-of-life option in the state. See more polling data.
