EMAIL SUBJECT LINE: Support for Medical Aid in Dying legislation

BODY: To the Office of [Insert Rep/Sen here],

This is [Your Name Here] from [your county]. I am contacting you today to discuss a deeply important topic for so many Floridians and the nationwide movement associated with it - Medical Aid in Dying.

Medical Aid in Dying (MAID) is a medical practice that provides a terminally ill, mentally capable adult with a prognosis of six months or less with the option to request a physician's prescription for medication they can decide to self-administer to peacefully end unbearable suffering. Patients in states where this process is legal frequently report feelings of comfort and security associated with simply having the option available. I have heard countless stories of loved ones enduring the painful process of terminal illness and eventual loss of autonomy. I hope by increasing end-of-life options including MAID we can allow every terminally ill Floridian the right to die in a dignified manner of their choosing.

I support medical aid in dying as an additional end of life care option.  The Florida End-of-Life Options Act will be filed this session, I hope you will support it too.
