WAMC Radio: Interview with Compassion & Choices President and CEO Kim Callinan
An excerpt from WAMC Northeast Public Radio’s interview with Compassion & Choices President and CEO Kim Callinan, “Group Lobbying For Aid-In-Dying Legislation In New York,” hosted by Lucas Willard, published Jan. 26, 2020:
With the legislative session in full swing at the New York state capitol, lobbying groups have been seeking to influence lawmakers on long-awaited policy changes.
The nonprofit group Compassion & Choices has been advocating across the country for Aid in Dying legislation, which has been stalled for years in Albany. Last year, Governor Andrew Cuomo said on WAMC that he supports the bill, but it didn’t make it to his desk before lawmakers left in June.
WAMC’s Lucas Willard spoke with Kim Callinan, President and CEO of the group.
