We Support the Human Right To a death with dignity

We hold that mentally competent adults who suffer from a terminal illness, intractable physical pain, chronic or progressive physical disabilities, or who face loss of autonomy and selfhood through dementia, have a basic human right to choose to end their lives when they judge their quality of life to be unacceptable.

FEN RESEARCH PUBLISHED IN JOURNAL OF DEATH AND DYING

Final Exit Network has published an article in OMEGA - Journal of Death and Dying on our initial findings in an ongoing study examining the reasoning and values people bring to the questions of if and when they might choose to end their lives.

Final Exit Network has created a new advance directive designed to prevent dying people from being hand fed against their wishes -- even if suffering from dementia. Click here to learn more about FEN’s Supplemental Advance Directive for Dementia Care (SADD).
