Medical Aid-in-Dying Campaign Progress

Track our work to keep expanding options nationwide

Advocacy in Action

Compassion & Choices continues leading efforts to authorize, implement and defend medical aid in dying throughout America so people in every state can access the full range of end-of-life options. So far, we have succeeded in authorizing medical aid in dying in 11 jurisdictions: California, Colorado, the District of Columbia, Hawai‘i, Maine, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Vermont and Washington.

Compassion & Choices currently heads campaigns in 18 states. This means a state director and staff on the ground bringing lobbying, media, marketing and legal expertise to rally lawmakers and support thousands of volunteers in getting bills passed. Our work is entirely donor-funded.
