Physician-assisted Suicide Legislation in MD

The Maryland General Assembly will soon begin hearings on the “End of Life Option Act” (House Bill 404/Senate Bill 418), which if enacted would allow doctors to legally prescribe a lethal medication at the request of a patient who has been diagnosed as terminally ill. For more information on the bill and how to contact legislators, view a bulletin insert from the Maryland Catholic Conference (English) (en español).
