January 2017: The Massachusetts Medical Society just decided to survey its members on whether or not to support legislation that would authorize medical aid in dying. We need to push the Medical Society of the State of New York (MSSNY) to do the same and to re-engage with this issue and reverse its opposition to medical aid in dying.
How do we do that? YOU. Each one of you has a doctor who you can ask to get involved. We need doctors who are members of their county medical societies to join with us in asking each county to reconsider, and put forth a resolution to the state society asking that it do the same. You can ask your doctor by clicking here: https://www.compassionandchoices.org/ask-your-doctor/ This is one concrete action that you can take to help our campaign.
Make an appointment.
Ask your doctor.
