Letter: Calling for support of House Bill 90, aid-in-dying

Posted

Regarding the issue of Feb. 21 and the story “A Remarkable Life, a Chosen Death” about dying with dignity.

Thank you for opening this conversation in our community. Avis is the third person I’ve known who resorted to leaving this world on her own terms by not eating and drinking.

While she was blessed to have her passing attended by loving people, not everyone who is a proper candidate for this process is able to do so. 

Avis has given us a precious gift by sharing her process with the whole town. I honor you, my hometown newspaper for your extensive coverage of this vital issue.

Hopefully, many of us will act by informing our State officials that we want HB 90, now in our legislature, to be passed. This includes asking Gov. Lujan Grisham to sign it. 

Bobbi Shapiro, Taos
