Milltown Parishioners Learn About Aid in Dying Bill at St. Paul’s Church

July 25, 2014 at 8:39 PM

MILLTOWN, NJ - On Sunday, July 20, Compassion & Choices, a national non-profit organization committed to improving care and expanding choice at the end of life, was invited to talk about aid in dying legislation at St. Paul’s Church in Milltown, NJ.

A representative from Compassion & Choices gave parishioners an overview of the New Jersey Aid in Dying for the Terminally Ill Act (A2270) and answered parishioners’ questions. The bill would allow mentally competent, terminally ill adults the option of requesting a prescription for life-ending medication that the patient would self-administer to reduce suffering at life’s end.

“It is important that people have the freedom to choose,” said St. Paul's Pastor Richard Weyer, who signed a petition asking the legislature to pass the bill.
