Attempt to replicate Oregon Law

Compassion and Choices (formerly Compassion in Dying and End-of-Life Choices) are attempting to have a law like the Oregon Death with Dignity Law passed in two more states: Vermont and California. Vermont considered the bill last year and conducted a study on the Oregon law which concluded that the law was helpful in improving end-of-life care and that it had not been abused. This year no vote was taken but there was a promise of a vote and a study for next year’s session.
