Research Center

Every day, students, terminally-ill individuals, medical professionals, advocates, and others are looking for more information about Death with Dignity Acts. Welcome to our Research Center: a great starting place to learn more about the movement, its history and current activities.

You can view additional resource links specific to patients and families, activists and advocates and health care providers.

Defend dignity. Take action.

You are the key to ensuring well-crafted Death with Dignity laws for all Americans. With your financial and volunteer help, the Death with Dignity National Center, a 501(c)(3), non-partisan, nonprofit organization, has been the leading advocate in the Death with Dignity movement. Individual contributions helped us pass new Death with Dignity laws in Washington and Vermont, defend the Oregon law, and provide education and outreach programs for the vitality of the Death with Dignity movement.
