"When people want to end their suffering, they don’t want to die — this isn’t suicide — they want to live, but they can’t because their bodies are breaking down."

- Sara Manns, Compassion and Choices Action Network, discusses SB 239, the Nevada End of Life Options Act, adding that this choice is “much more protective of people’s freedom and their rights.” She explains that this would allow a legal process to end one’s life, with safeguards in place including needing to be an adult, be terminally ill with less than six months to live and have multiple provider assessments.
