March movie title: How To Die In Oregon
In July, California became the 4th of 5 states to pass a Death with Dignity law, also known as physician-assisted dying and Right-to-Die law. Those who oppose it often call it physician-assisted suicide.
Because of this new law, we chose How to Die In Oregon for our March film.
In 1994 Oregon became the first state to legalize medical aid in dying. At the time, only Belgium, Switzerland, and the Netherlands had legalized the practice. ‘How to Die in Oregon’ tell the stories of those most intimately involved with the practice today — terminally ill Oregonians, their families, doctors, and friends — as well as the passage of a medical aid in dying law in Washington State.
The intimate Sundance Award-winning documentary HOW TO DIE IN OREGON is a powerful, compassionate exploration of Oregon’s historic and controversial Death with Dignity Act, which legalizes physician aid-in-dying for some terminally ill patients. The film tells the stories of people who died under the act, and follows the crusade of one woman who honors her husband by fighting for similar choices in the state of Washington.
Join us to watch the film will be followed by a lively and educational discussion.Full description of this powerful documentary.
