Compassion & Choices and ACLU of New Mexico commend Representative Deborah Armstrong and co-sponsor, Representative Bill McCamley, for filing the the End-of-Life Options Act, HB 171. The measure would allow mentally capable, terminally ill adults in New Mexico the ability to request a prescription from their doctor that they may self-administer to achieve a peaceful death if they decide their suffering has become intolerable.
