Death with Dignity National Center

The mission of the Death with Dignity National Center is to promote death with dignity laws based on our model legislation, the Oregon Death with Dignity Act, both to provide an option for dying individuals and to stimulate nationwide improvements in end-of-life care. We are an organization that expands the freedom of all qualified terminally ill Americans to make their own end-of-life decisions, including how they die; promotes death with dignity laws around the United States based on the groundbreaking Oregon model; provides information, education, and support about Death with Dignity as an end-of-life option to patients, family members, legislators, advocates, healthcare and end-of-life care professionals, media, and the interested public; and mounts legal defense of physician-assisted dying legislation.
