Patient Choices Vermont (PCV) is dedicated to educating Vermonters about Medical Aid in Dying.
Vermont's Patient Choice at End of Life Law (Act 39), enacted in May 2013, enables people who are terminally ill and who are capable of making their own medical decisions the option to request and receive medication that they can use to bring about a peaceful death if and when they so choose.
Please help support our work to provide education and access to medical aid in dying.
Your Story Matters!
You are Invited to Help Mark the 10th Anniversary of Act 39
Together, we are accomplishing a pivotal shift in cultural attitudes toward end-of-life choice. Please share your experience.
