Medical aid in dying, sometimes known as death with dignity, is a practice that has been available to Oregonians for over two decades. It allows a terminally ill adult of sound mind to receive medication to peacefully end their life if their pain becomes unbearable. Proposed legislation in Minnesota would provide similar options to its residents enabling individuals to take charge of their end-of life journey. Come learn about the legislation and the key role Unitarian Universalists played in the national movement for medical aid-in-dying.
