Statement from Governor Murphy on Medical Aid in Dying for the Terminally Ill Act


“This measure is about dignity. Senator Scutari and Assemblyman Burzichelli should be commended for sponsoring this bill that will make us a more dignified and empathetic state. For Assemblyman Burzichelli, in particular, with whom I have met to discuss this issue, this bill has been a personal fight for years.

“Allowing terminally ill and dying residents the dignity to make end-of-life decisions according to their own consciences is the right thing to do. I look forward to signing this legislation into law.”
