New York

Legal situation

In short

 The situation in New York is well described by the Death with Dignity National Center:


In 2019, two bills are released in New York:

These bills are not been discussed in 2020 due to Covid19, and are still waiting for a follow up.

In 2021, New York Assembly member Kevin Cahill (U), introduced and assigned bill A 198 to the New York Assembly Committee on Health. The bill requires the Commissioner of Health to conduct a study relating to medical aid in dying in the event that New York State allows for medical aid in dying. The request refers to the two bills on Medical Aid in Dying (see before) that were introduced in 2019.
