Thank you to Washington State Representative Shelley Kloba for meeting with us today to discuss Death with Dignity. Our conversation about the nuances of the relationship between hospice, disability rights, and Death with Dignity will help us continue our advocacy for DWD in our community and nationwide. There is a public hearing about the expansion of Death with Dignity in Washington state, HB1141, tomorrow morning at 8:30am here.
As we move toward national support for this important issue, we want to recognize New Mexico for passing the Elizabeth Whitefield End of Life Options Act, HB47, through four different committee hearings and the full House and Senate this week. Congratulations!
