What we’re about

Arizona End-of-Life Options is a grassroots volunteer coalition, organized to gain passage of a state medical aid in dying (MAID) law making it possible for terminally ill Arizona residents to legally obtain medications that eliminate undue and prolonged suffering at the end of life.

The proposed legislation is modeled after time-tested laws already in effect in Oregon, Washington, California, Colorado, New Jersey, Vermont, Maine, Hawaii, and the District of Columbia (Montana also has it by court decision). AND New Mexico passed a MAID law in 2021!

As is true in all these states, utilizing this end of life option will be straightforward and easy to understand. Yet it will include many legal, medical and ethical safeguards to prevent abuse or misuse. These safeguards have been proven effective for over two decades since the first such law took effect in Oregon in 1997.
