Faced with a terminal diagnosis, North Carolina residents deserve the full range of options for care at the end of life, 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.
Most recently, on May 3, 2021, the North Carolina House of Representatives introduced H.B 780, legislation authorizing medical aid in dying, with bipartisan support. The bill has been referred to the committee on Rules, Calendar, and Operations of the House.
