Springfield, IL – A groundbreaking bill under consideration by Illinois lawmakers could offer a new option for terminally ill patients seeking control over their end-of-life decisions. 

The proposed legislation would enable individuals diagnosed with a terminal illness and given a prognosis of six months or less to live, to request medication for the purpose of ending their life. A key provision mandates the agreement of more than one doctor on the terminal diagnosis, ensuring a careful and comprehensive evaluation process.

The measure has ignited a complex debate around ethical considerations and patient autonomy.
