Current Status

There is no legislative activity around Death with Dignity in Florida.

In late 2015, on the heels of California’s law, the Sun Sentinel Editorial Board published an editorial in support of Death with Dignity. The editorial recalled a case 30 years prior which brought the issue to the fore, when a man from Broward helped to end his wife’s life and served time in prison, but noted no change in the laws had been contemplated since that time. The editorial ended stating physician aid-in-dying is “a complex, emotional issue, but it is time to have the conversation in Florida.”
