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.)
