CLA Policy – Euthanasia

CLA supports a person’s rights over his or her mind and body, from birth through death. Competent individuals should have free choice in advance whether they wish to receive treatment, or continuing treatment when no longer competent. A person is free to end his or her own life. These rights should be contained in legislation.
