The ACLU of New Mexico fought to make this compassionate care, known as medical aid in dying, available to New Mexicans by filing the lawsuit Morris v. New Mexico in 2011. The New Mexico State Supreme Court ruled against terminally ill New Mexicans in this matter, and referred the issue to the NM State Legislature where the ACLU of New Mexico continues to advocate in favor of medical aid in dying.
