Death with dignity
This spring, LD 347, An Act to Support Death with Dignity, will come before the Legislature of Maine.
This bill is identical to LD 1270 which was defeated by only one senate vote in 2015.
If you are interested in seeing LD 347 become law, please consider speaking out through letters to your legislators or to the editors of newspapers. You can submit personal testimony to the Health and Human Services Committee in Augusta or, better still, go to Augusta and tell your story about why An Act to Support Death with Dignity is important to you.
LD 347 allows for individual choice and options at the end-of-life. Six states, including the District of Columbia, already have this freedom. Wouldn't it be great if Maine could enjoy the same freedom?
