Support Death with Dignity in Connecticut

The Connecticut Joint Public Health Committee is currently considering HB 5898, an important bill that will allow terminally ill people to receive compassionate medical aid-in-dying. This measure would create a patient-driven system that honors the values and beliefs of the individual.

By passing this legislation, Connecticut would join the 8 states that already offer these end-of-life options, allowing terminally ill people to die in the comfort of their homes without receiving unwanted medical care.

However, religious groups, including the Catholic Church, vigorously oppose this common-sense legislation.

Please help us tell Connecticut lawmakers to stand strong and to pass this bill!

Although approximately 80% of Americans desire to pass away in the comfort of their own home, less than 20% actually do so. We need your help to pass this important legislation to allow terminally ill people in Connecticut to die with dignity, in peace.

Please take action by emailing these committee members now.
