Colorado Wrestles with Ethics of Aid in Dying as Vote Looms

October 12, 2016

(NPR) – The ballot initiative is drawing passion — and plenty of money. According to the latest filings with the Colorado Secretary of State’s office, backers have raised about $5.3 million, mostly from Compassion & Choices Action Network. The “No Assisted Suicide Colorado” campaign has raised $1.8 million. That money is primarily coming from the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Denver, which has donated $1.1 million, as well as other archdioceses around the country.
