Compassion & Choices has released its 2018-2019 annual report.
Here are a few excerpts:
- Compassion & Choices realized transformational progress in 2018-2019. We passed medical aid in dying in New Jersey, cheered a second victory in Maine and advanced legislation in dozens more states.”
- “We took on the reality that current medical aid-in-dying laws are in fact too restrictive — placing too many needless hurdles in front of eligible, profoundly anguished patients.”
- “We expanded efforts to address disparities in end-of-life care within communities of color, promoting the awareness and tools necessary for more of their members to seize their own empowerment.”
- “At a time of profound division in our country, we are heartened that the universal idea of patients having a voice in their own care is a value everyone can agree on.”
