What Colorado's End-of-Life Act Means for BSLC

What Colorado's End-of-Life Act Means for BSLC

In November 2016, Colorado voted on Proposition 106, known as the "End of Life Options Act," which enables competent adults who are terminally ill to request and self-administer medication for the purpose of ending their life. Participation under the Act is voluntary for both residents and long-term care facilities, including Bethesda Senior Living Communities. Because we are a faith-based organization guided by scriptural teachings that all life is sacred and a gift from God, our organization has chosen to opt out. Attached please find our full statement on the Act and our stance, which is guided by our faith.
