Catholic leaders are concerned that the new legislative session in New York in January will focus on an important end of life issue, legalizing assisted suicide.

They would be following 10 other states who have already passed laws allowing it

Those are Vermont, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Washington, California, and the District of Columbia.

Montana has also legalized assisted suicide through a state Supreme Court decision.

Joining Currents News to talk more about this is Kristen Curran, Director of Government Relations for the New York State Catholic Conference.
