Arizona assisted suicide House Bill 2254

Arizona State Legislature
Assisted suicide bills have been introduced in Arizona every year since 2016. In 2021, HB 2254 was introduced by Representative Powers Hanley (D) who also sponsored assisted suicide bills in 2018, 2019 and 2020.

HB 2254 is similar to the original Oregon assisted suicide law.

Several states that legalized assisted suicide, such as Oregon, Washington State and Hawaii, are now expanding their assisted suicide laws. If HB 2254 passes the assisted suicide lobby will move to expand it in future years.
