April State Status Update

We celebrate victories in Connecticut, Maryland, and New Mexico!

CONNECTICUT: Assisted suicide was defeated once again in Connecticut. Connecticut Legislature rejected the latest effort to legalize assisted suicide and bill SB1076 did not go forward. 

Once again, the state of Connecticut has made the right decision to protect patients.

MARYLAND: The Maryland legislative session officially ended earlier this week (April 10th), so HB 933 and SB 845, are now dead for this year. These two bills would have legalized assisted suicide in Maryland.

We are thankful for our advocates on the ground that lead the stop to this deadly and discriminatory bill. 

NEW MEXICO: New Mexico has amended their “End of Life Options Act” [Assisted Suicide Law] to allow medical professionals the right to decline participation in these dangerous and discriminatory laws if they object for conscience reasons.

This provides doctors with the freedom to protect patients at risk of deadly harm. We are grateful for this victory!
