Medical Aid in Dying Act Introduced

May 11, 2016

Yesterday, dozens of volunteers turned out to the New York State Capitol to tell legislators why they support authorizing medical aid in dying. We held a press conference to announce an important breakthrough- sponsoring legislators combined the two medical aid-in-dying bills into a single bill, the Medical Aid in Dying Act.

A combined bill will allow Compassion & Choices and supporters to focus on advancing a single piece of legislation. Sen. Diane Savino and Assemblymember Amy Paulin are the sponsors of the new legislation.

After the press conference, Compassion & Choices volunteers from across the state held nearly 100 meetings with state legislators.
