Dolores Huerta, the 90-year-old Civil Rights icon was born in northern New Mexico and is a fervent supporter of expanding end-of-life options in the state. In a message directed to New Mexico legislators, Huerta stressed:
“I urge members of the Legislature to stand with the majority of la gente of New Mexico, and work together as a community to hear the voice of terminally ill New Mexicans whose last wish in life is to die peacefully without unbearable, unnecessary suffering. Si Se Puede — Yes We Can.”
