This month, I joined my fellow Connecticut residents testifying in support of the state’s proposed medical aid-in-dying legislation now being considered by the General Assembly. The bill would allow terminally ill people with a prognosis of six months or less to live, the option to take medication to die peacefully in their sleep. My message to the committee was simple. This issue is about giving peoplethe ability to make decisions about how they will face the final days. Across the country, states are passing similar laws.
