Florida Death with Dignity Act

The Oregon and Washington Death with dignity Acts allow mentally competent, terminally ill adult state residents to voluntarily request and receive prescription medication to hasten their death. This is one of the many end-of-life care options available in Oregon and Washington.

Let's pass legislation to allow terminally ill adult residents in the state of Florida the same human freedom.

  • Brooke Taylor It doesn't take much intelligence to be able to figure out that, given the diagnosis of a terminal illness, a human being should be able to make the decision to pass with dignity rather than continue to suffer.

  • Sara LeHew As an emergency room RN, I watch and hear too many people with terminal illnesses as they suffer unnecessarily and beg for us to ease their pain and end their life. It's heart wrenching. Especially since we treat animals with more respect by euthanizing them to end their suffering, yet give no consideration to our fellow human beings by empowering them with the CHOICE of dying with dignity.

  • Nina LaPiana This is the most ethical movement I have seen out of humanity in my lifetime. It is wonderful.
