End-of-life help

Thank you for publishing the piece about the end of life choice to pursue death with dignity (Sunday, Feb. 2)

In 1997, Oregonians became the first state to pass the Death with Dignity Act that allows terminally -ill Oregonians to end their lives through the voluntary self-administration of lethal medications, expressly prescribed by a physician for that purpose. Since then, eight other states and the District of Columbia have joined Oregon, and more than a dozen additional states are considering doing so.

We are fortunate here in Southern Oregon to have local expertise and support for qualified people to pursue this option. End of Life Choices Oregon Is a nonprofit whose mission is to provide personal support and information regarding the Death with Dignity Act and other legal end-of-life options to Oregonians facing end-of-life decisions, to the medical community and to the public.

For more information, please contact End of Life Choices Oregon at 503-922-1132 or eolcoregon.org.
