End-of-life Choices for Death with Dignity
Compassion & Choices, Boulder is a local chapter of the national organization of the same name that advocates for choice at end of life. We believe that human beings have the fundamental right to choose the time and manner of our deaths. Therefore, Compassion & Choices, Boulder supports an individual’s choice in dying, including physician aid in dying (also referred to as physician assisted suicide and euthanasia).
Our national organization improves care and expands choice at the end of life by providing an end-of-life counseling program, providing free, confidential, professional support anywhere in the country. In addition, Compassion & Choices advocates for laws and legal precedents to support physician aid in dying.
We at Compassion & Choices, Boulder are dedicated to educating the public regarding end-of-life preparation, choices in dying, and death with dignity. To fulfill our mission we provide a bi-monthly meeting, open to all, with a featured speaker discussing some aspect related to end of life. We also videotape our meetings and make them available online.
