Medical Aid in Dying: A Policy to Improve Care & Expand Options at Life’s End

Nearly 30 years ago, Oregon passed the nation’s first law allowing terminally ill, mentally capable adults with a prognosis of six months or less to request a prescription for medication they can take to die peacefully. Currently, 10 states and Washington, D.C., have authorized this time-tested option of medical aid in dying, seven of these jurisdictions between 2015 and 2021.
