SANTA FE — New Mexico legislators granted final approval Tuesday to a bill that would establish an End-of-Life Options Act, sending it to Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham.
The House agreed to the Senate amendments to House Bill 47, the final step necessary for legislative approval.
The measure would allow patients with a terminal illness to seek a doctor’s help to end their life. The patient would have to be able to self-administer the life-ending medicine.
