Sunday Speaker: Dr Dwight Moore – Dying with Dignity…what is it really like?

A story of a woman who did all she could to die with dignity in spite of amazing hurdles

 

 

This talk illustrates the real life and death choice one woman made in search of a dignified death. We want this privilege in Arizona.

Arizona End-of-Life Options is an all-volunteer, nonprofit coalition dedicated to the passage of a state law allowing terminally ill residents to obtain prescription medications that eliminate undue suffering at the end of life and assure a dignified, peaceful passing. We are nonpartisan and nonsectarian. Our purpose, goals, and proposed legislation are modeled after our highly respected national partners: “Death with Dignity” and “Compassion & Choices.” The end-of-life practice we endorse is called medical aid-in-dying (MAID).

We are making solid progress in our efforts to get state government, the media, and the public to recognize that Arizonans should have a voice and a choice in their end-of-life care. Nine states and the District of Columbia already have MAID statutes in place, meaning this basic human right has been extended to some 70 million Americans. It also means Arizona is playing catch-up.

Right now we are engaged in an aggressive grassroots campaign to communicate our positive story to all 90 members of the Arizona House and Senate. This effort, utilizing the efforts of our 350 volunteers, began in May and will continue at least through year-end.
