Our Mission

Florida Death with Dignity, a 501(c)(3) non-profit grass roots movement, is dedicated to educate, promote, and raise awareness in individuals, organizations, and communities resulting in support for a medical aid in dying law in Florida.  We are partnered with the Death with Dignity National Center.

ANNOUNCEMENT 12/07/2023: 

The Florida End-of-Life Options Act, HB561, was assigned to three committees, the first being the Healthcare Regulation Subcommittee.  If you agree that Medical Aid in Dying should be legal in Florida, then please contact the Chairperson Michelle Salzman (michelle.salzman@myfloridahouse.gov)  and Co-Chair Kimberly Berfield (kim.berfield@myfloridahouse.gov) and ask them to add HB561, The Florida End of Life Options Act, to the Healthcare Regulation Subcommittee’s agenda to be discussed by its members.  Please use “Florida End of Life Options Act, HB561” as your subject title, and sign with your name and city. We are working on a similar bill in the Senate and will post updates when it is filed.

About Us

The Florida Death with Dignity organization is a grassroots movement determined to raise awareness and fight for expanding end-of-life options in the state of Florida.


Only one in five Americans lives in a jurisdiction with access to medical aid in dying. The movement gathers strength every time someone shares their story.

A long-time advocate for medical aid in dying, Roger Kligler is a retired physician in Falmouth, MA, living with prostate cancer.  Hear his request for Massachusetts to pass a medical aid in dying law.

Erik Carlson was staring down a terminal illness with an awful end. He wasn’t sure he would choose this option but he wanted the choice. Eventually, he seized it.  His family is loving and supportive.  Please watch and share.
