As you may know, the Compassionate Aid in Dying Act, which authorizes medical aid in dying in Massachusetts, is still under review by the Joint Public Health Committee of the state legislature.
While the bill is being reviewed on Beacon Hill, we need your help to remind lawmakers that we stand with the 70% of MA voters and the millions of voters throughout the nation that support expanding choices at the end of life.
Help us keep the Compassionate Aid in Dying Act alive by communicating with your lawmakers. Lawmakers all across the state want to know where you stand. Join our citizen lobbying campaign, by signing the petition that urges legislative support for this important human right.
Supportive petitions and letters from voters played a huge role in last year’s passage of California’s End of Life Option Act. Let your voice be heard so that Massachusetts can be next. Use our tool to send a message to your lawmakers.
Please feel free to include a personal story in your message — it’s impossible to overstate the resonance of personal testimony when appealing to lawmakers.
