Colorado is Ready for The End-of-Life Options Act

Compassion & Choices is gearing up to introduce aid-in-dying legislation during the 2016 legislative session. We know that Coloradans overwhelmingly support the right to aid in dying. In a 2015 independent poll of likely voters, 68% percent said they would ask their legislators to vote in favor of the bill.

Like other states where aid in dying is authorized, to request a prescription for aid-in-dying medication under the Colorado End-of-Life Options Act, people must be over 18, in the final stages of a terminal illness as confirmed by a second opinion, be of sound mind, and they must take the medicine by themselves.

Support the End-of-Life Option Act in Colorado

When a dying Coloradan has only months, weeks or days to live and cannot be cured, we should respect their decision to end their pain and suffering. Colorado legislators should vote YES on the End-of-Life Options Act!
