Dwight Moore, Ph.D., of Arizona End of Life Options
The proposed legislation is modeled after time-tested laws already in effect in Oregon, Washington, California, Colorado, New Jersey, Vermont, Maine, Hawaii, and the District of Columbia (Montana also has it by court decision).
As is true in all these states, utilizing this end of life option will be straightforward and easy to understand. Yet it will include many legal, medical, and ethical safeguards to prevent abuse or misuse. These safeguards have been proven effective for over two decades since the first such law took effect in Oregon in 1997.
Dr. Moore, a psychologist, volunteers for Arizona End of Life Options. He was a team leader in California during their campaign to pass medical aid in dying, is a volunteer for End of Life Washington, and is the Chair of the Education Committee for AZELO. Retired as an industrial psychologist, he helped select and develop leaders worth following.
