The New Mexico Elizabeth Whitefield End-of-Life Options Act authorizes medical aid in dying. Medical aid in dying is a safe and trusted medical practice in which a terminally ill, mentally capable adult with a prognosis of six months or less to live may request from his or her healthcare provider a prescription for medication which they can choose to self-ingest to bring about a peaceful death. The law went into effect June 18, 2021. Learn more about this new law from our distinguished panel.

Presenters:

  • Emeritus Professor Robert Schwartz, University of New Mexico School of Law
  • Professor Jonathan Bolton, MD, University of New Mexico Health Sciences Institute of Ethics
