Status of Medical Aid-in-Dying Legislation

Faced with a terminal diagnosis, Georgia residents deserve the full range end-of-life care options, including medical aid in dying. Medical aid in dying allows terminally ill adults to get a prescription they can take to end their life peacefully.

In the Courts

In April 2023, Compassion & Choices submitted an amicus brief to the Georgia Court of Appeals to ensure the courts honor the preferences of incapacitated patients. (links to amicus brief page.)

Volunteers are at the heart of Compassion & Choices advocacy, education and outreach efforts, paving the way for a full range of end-of-life options nationwide. Become a volunteer in Georgia today.
