The Rhode Island House Health, Education, and Welfare Committee has held a hearing on the Lila Sapinsley Compassionate Care Act, a bill that would allow terminally ill people to access medical aid in dying. We need supporters like you to send letters to the lawmakers and urge them to support this legislation.
The committee members listened respectfully to our testimony and arguments in support of the bill, but it was clear that we have work to do to educate them on the need for expanded end-of-life options. That’s where you can help right now!
Direct contact with legislators played a huge role in last year’s passage of California’s End of Life Option Act. Make your voice heard and Rhode Island could be next. Feel free to include a personal story in your message. It’s impossible to overstate the resonance of personal testimony when appealing to lawmakers.
Your support is crucial. Please take a few moments to tell lawmakers the time to pass this bill is now. It’s quick and easy with our online tool.
