Assisted Suicide Supporters See Progress For Long-Stalled New York Proposal

Sharing is caring!

By Nick Reisman

Advocates for people with disabilities worry people who are struggling with an illness can easily become depressed and feel their options are far more limited. 

“A lot of the discussion around the issue kind of overlooks the impact of people with disabilities,” said Alex Thompson of the New York Association of Independent Living. “We want to make sure options like palliative sedation is available and hospice is available and all those other options. We’re all in agreement that we don’t want people suffering at the end of their lives. It’s just a disagreement of how we do that.”
