Coloradans overwhelmingly voted to make medical aid in dying an accessible end-of-life care option for terminally ill people. And on December 16, 2016, Colorado's Governor Hickenlooper signed the Colorado End-of-Life Options Act into law.

Compassion & Choices is launching a Colorado Access Campaign to ensure that dying people who are suffering have access to the law.
