A Compassion & Choices lawsuit led to a landmark ruling last year: “This Court cannot envision a right more fundamental, more private or more integral to the liberty, safety and happiness of a New Mexican than the right of a competent, terminally ill patient to choose aid in dying.”

With aid in dying protected by a New Mexico court decision, C&C is focused on educating and supporting health care providers and consumers. C&C is encouraging its members to talk to their doctors about end-of-life choices, and convening groups of physicians and other providers for discussions. Action teams and volunteers across the state continue their educational outreach in the wider community. The January 2014 ruling was in the case of Morris v. New Mexico, filed by Compassion & Choices and the ACLU of New Mexico, and is currently under appeal. To find out how you can get involved, get in touch using the contact information below!
