With Compassion & Choices’ support, Patient Choices Vermont is heading a campaign and has introduced a bill in the Vermont legislature this session to bring aid in dying to the state.
A week of highly publicized hearings has just wrapped up with testimony from citizens both for and against the bill with a unanimous vote to send the bill to the floor of the senate for debate.
Now we need your help to raise awareness and overcome the opposition.
