Vermont House Human Services Committee Advances Death with Dignity


All the recent legislative activity surrounding Death with Dignity shows Americans are ready for a meaningful conversation about how we die. Your support makes it possible for us to work with people throughout the US to advance these discussions.

Some highlights:

  • Vermont: Our partners on the ground are mobilizing citizens to talk to their lawmakers about why these laws are needed. A Death with Dignity bill has already cleared the Senate, and moments ago, the House Human Services Committee voted to advance a bill with safeguards which emulates the time-tested Oregon Death with Dignity Act. The bill now moves to the House Judiciary Committee for consideration, and Judiciary has dedicated this week to hearing testimony on the bill.
  • New Jersey: A bill which would lead to a voter referendum for a Death with Dignity law has been sent to the floor of the House for consideration.
  • New Hampshire: The House advanced a bill to study Death with Dignity laws.
