In a historic vote, the Medical Aid in Dying Act passed through the State Assembly Health Committee, bringing us one step closer to expanding end-of-life options for all New Yorkers.
We also need to take a moment to thank the sponsors of this legislation, Sen. Diane Savino and Assemblymember Amy Paulin, as well as our cosponsors and all of those who voted for the bill in the health committee. We would not have been able to celebrate today without their work.
It’s important that we take some time to thank our sponsors and show them that we appreciate them taking a stand for end-of-life options. If legislators know the community is behind them, it will ensure that that they continue to support this vital legislation.
