House Quashes "Right to Die" Bill (HB 90)

Rep. Deborah Armstrong
Sante Fe New Mexican

One of this legislative session’s most controversial bills has been tabled for the 2019 legislative session....

Though the bill, known as the Elizabeth Whitefield End of Life Options Act, made it through two House committees this year, it was quietly tabled in the House of Representatives in late February.

On Tuesday, [Rep. Deborah] Armstrong wrote in an email that the bill was tabled “at my request.”

Dore Memo Urging No Vote on HB 90


I am a lawyer and president of Choice is an Illusion, a nonprofit corporation opposed to assisted suicide and euthanasia.[1] The Act, HB 90, seeks to legalize medical “aid in dying,” a traditional euphemism for active euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide.[2]

HB 90 is based on similar statutes in Oregon and Washington State. If enacted, it will apply to people with years or decades to live. It will create new paths of abuse and exploitation.[3]

Individuals with money, meaning the middle class and above, will be especially at risk. I urge you to vote “No” on HB 90.
