End-of-Life Choice, Death with Dignity, Palliative Care and Counseling

Celebrating the 24th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)by Chris


Compassion & Choices celebrates the 24th anniversary of the 1990 Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) on July 26, because we share its goal of increased autonomy and expanded options for all people.

Sign the petition if you believe that all adults should be free to make their own end-of-life decisions, regardless of whether they live with disabilities.

Recent polls in the Northeast show a strong majority of voters living with disabilities support death with dignity in each state polled: Connecticut (65%), Massachusetts (74%) and New Jersey (63%).

Compassion & Choices believes end-of-life choice is a basic civil and human right. We are dedicated to ensuring adults secure this right in every state, not just a select few states where it currently exists (Oregon, Washington, Montana, Vermont and New Mexico).

Sign the petition today to stand with Compassion & Choices in celebrating the success of the ADA and continuing to defend the autonomy of all Americans.
