Announcing the Medical Aid in Dying Act on May 10: Senator Brad Hoylman, Sen. Diane Savino, and Assemblywoman Amy Paulin on May 10.

On May 23, the NYS Assembly Health Committee passed the Medical Aid in Dying Act 14-11. This is tremendous progress for a bill that the legislature began seriously considering only a few months ago. And it’s because of our supporters who sent thousands of emails and made hundreds of phone calls and personal visits to lawmakers in their home district offices and here in Albany. In the coming days, we’ll be asking our supporters to say THANK YOU to their individual lawmakers. We hope that more and more of you get involved as the hard work to get this through more committees in both the Assembly and the Senate is yet to come.
