HARTFORD, Conn. – Although legislation that would allow mentally competent, terminally ill patients to medically end their lives did not make it through the legislative session this year, supporters are already gearing up for Connecticut’s 2015 legislative session.

Compassion & Choices, a nonprofit organization that counsels people on ways they can control when and how they die if they wish, held a forum Thursday to educate people about, and gain support for, the controversial issue.

Compassion & Choices President Barbara Coombs Lee said the goal of the evening was to energize people to become activists for right-to-die legislation.

“Too many people suffer needlessly, die prolonged deaths,” Coombs Lee said “People can have peace of mind when they have control and choices.”
