Death with Dignity Movement Gains Momentum Nationwide

It is an exciting time for those of us in the Death with Dignity movement. Never before have so many pieces of legislation been up for debate and moving forward at the same time. In 2016, 20 states considered an aid in dying bill. While none was voted into law, advocates and lawmakers have been building the groundwork and coalitions for future success. Death with Dignity National Center is proud to support many of these great efforts through education, advocacy and technical support.
