Organization Steps Up 'Right To Die' Campaign

June 28, 2010 by  

Organization steps up 'right to die' campaign A nonprofit organization that provides counsel, support and guidance on the right to die issue has launched a billboard campaign in several states to raise awareness and promote dialogue on what it sees as a basic human right.

The billboards appear in New Jersey, Florida and California to highlight The Final Exit Network’s belief that terminally ill but mentally competent adults have the right to make a decision to end their lives when its quality becomes unacceptable. The organization states that it sees this as each individual’s right to choose that should not be restricted by law, clergy, healthcare providers or even family members.

"FEN does not encourage anyone to end their life, does not provide the means to do so and does not actively assist in the person’s death," said the organization’s president Jerry Dincin.

"We do, however, believe in the ultimate human right of people to end their lives when circumstances justify, and to have support in carrying out their plan," he added.

Earlier this year, The Final Exit Network praised the Supreme Court of Montana for its decision to uphold the legality of physician-assisted suicide, making the state the third in the nation to do so.

At that time, Dincin said that the ruling brings America closer to "the final human right of the 21st century." ADNFCR-1961-ID-19856420-ADNFCR
