    Medical Aid in Dying - The Outlook in Minnesota

    Dr Rebecca Thoman is a Minnesota physician, long-time LWV Minneapolis member, and is associated with Doctors For Dignity and Compassion & Choices. Legislative campaigns for medical aid in dying are gaining momentum across the nation. Ten states and the District of Columbia currently authorize the practice. Modeled after Oregon’s Death with Dignity law, the Minnesota End-of-Life Option Act would authorize medical aid in dying so that terminally ill Minnesotans of sound mind may ask for and receive prescribed medication they could choose to self-administer for a peaceful death. Rebecca will share the LWV Utah 2016 Death with Dignity study and an addendum that includes updated and additional information from between 2016 and 2020. She will discuss a recent related study conducted by the Minneapolis LWV on this very important topic.
