No Clear Path
There is no clear indication that lawmakers in this state are prepared to unite and move forward on a bill. This underscores the need for a strong, national movement.
In partnership with Death with Dignity, the grassroots group Arizona End of Life Options is working to ensure Arizona residents with a terminal illness can choose to die in a peaceful, humane manner in a place and time of their choosing.
