Death with Dignity is a national leader in end-of-life advocacy and policy reform. Our mission focuses on improving how people with terminal illness die. We know some people die in horrible ways as their terminal illness overtakes them. In our current healthcare landscape, that is undeniable. And, it’s unacceptable.
History is on our side.
Proven safe, effective, and above all, meaningful, the Oregon Death with Dignity Act works exactly as intended and exactly for whom it was intended, without fail.
Since 1997, these laws have empowered people with terminal illness to have the control they want during the last days of their lives.
Our goal is to ensure people with terminal illness can decide for themselves what a good death means in accordance with their values and beliefs, and that should include having an option for death with dignity. We won’t stop until that is a reality in every part of the country.
