Please watch, and then share with everyone you know.


When the DEA announced a potential rule change that would restrict terminally ill patients from getting prescriptions from their doctors via telemedicine, Death with Dignity mobilized a national campaign to collect public comments opposing the rule. Along with our partners at The Completed Life initiative and ACAMAID, we built a coalition and gathered nearly 10,000 public comments from supporters across the country. Last Friday, our coalition hand delivered your public comments directly to the DEA headquarters.

What became clear — over the two hours it took to deliver your comments — is that while the DEA wants patients to go through the hassle of having to physically see their doctors, they didn’t want the hassle of having to receive our comments in person, rather than online.
