Sen. Chris Eaton (DFL – Brooklyn Center) and Rep. Mike Freiberg (DFL – Hopkins) introduced the End-of-Life Option Act for 2017 (SF 1572,HF 1885) on March 1, 2017.

Unfortunately, the bill was not heard during the 2017 legislative session. We know that the vast majority of Minnesotans want access to medical aid in dying. Compassion & Choices is organizing in Minnesota and mobilizing volunteers to send a strong message to lawmakers. If you would like to join an Action Team to mobilize your community  clicking here.
