Wisconsin

CURRENT STATUS: Pending Bills

We’re Building Momentum in Wisconsin

In 2023, Wisconsin lawmakers introduced the Our Care, Our Options Act (AB781/SB739). If passed, this would allow residents of Wisconsin to access medical aid in dying.

SIGN OUR PETITION to say that it’s time to pass AB781/SB739, and expand the right to Death with Dignity to those who live in Wisconsin.

Death with Dignity laws have been proven effective at improving healthcare quality at the end of life, regardless of whether or not an individual chooses to hasten their death.
