Status of the Minnesota End-of-Life Option Act (SF1813/HF1930

The state Legislature is considering a bill to authorize medical aid in dying

Thanks to the persistence of thousands of Minnesota advocates, the Minnesota End-of-Life Option Act has moved farther in the House of Representatives than ever before, passing successfully through 4 committees. HF1930 now heads to the House Ways and Means Committee which is expected to discuss the bill in April.

Unfortunately, the Minnesota Senate did not schedule a hearing on the bill before its self-imposed deadline for policy bills. But, with seven more weeks of legislative session ahead, CCAN will continue to remind lawmakers of their commitment to support for bodily autonomy, which should also apply at the end of life.

In 2023, 73% of Minnesota State Fairgoers answered “YES” to this question:  Should terminally ill adults have the option to end their lives with the assistance of health care Providers?

By a three-to-one margin, Minnesotans feel that allowing doctors to legally prescribe lethal drugs to help terminally ill patients end their own lives should be an end-of-life option in the state. See more polling data.
