A 2014 poll of American doctors showed the majority of them support medical aid in dying for patients with a terminal and incurable disease. The more frequently doctors speak out, the sooner terminally ill patients will actually have that option. That’s why we need your help to recruit your doctors as supporters of medical aid in dying!
Please ask your doctor where they stand on expanding end-of-life options, and ask them to join our campaign to pass legislation authorizing medical aid in dying in New York State.
Here’s how you can help:
1. Schedule your next appointment or checkup with your family doctor or a specialist
you see regularly.
2. During the appointment, tell your doctor why you believe aid in dying should be a compassionate option for certain eligible adults facing a terminal prognosis.
3. Ask your doctor if she or he agrees. If she or he agrees, please let us know by entering their information to the right. A representative of Compassion & Choices will follow up with your doctor.
