John Abraham,” an Episcopal Priest, is the Arizona Affiliate Leader for Final Exit network (FEN), has been a counselor, therapist, author, healthcare administrator, and patient advocate for over 40 years.
He has contributed to numerous journals, including Thanatos, Omega and authored a book, “How To Get the Death You Want,” as an expert in the field of Thanatology (scientific study of death).”

John  is the Arizona Affiliate Coordinator for Final Exit Network,

“Final Exit Network is a national non-profit (501c3) organization
serving members throughout the country – in all 50 states.
Final Exit Network is the only national organization that publicly offers education, support, and a compassionate presence to our members. We provide exit guides throughout the U.S. to those who meet our Medical Committee requirements.
Through the defense of our Exit Guides, we have made significant changes to laws in states where our right to provide services has been challenged. As the U.S. host of the 20th international biennial conference, our support of the World Federation of Right to Die Society’s Conference in September 2014 in Chicago highlighted the importance of this significant WORLD movement.
Many of our members join to promote the right to death with dignity. Others join to support our exit guide volunteers, or to help pay for legal protection for our exit guides.
It is our hope that one day, the right to death-with-dignity will be far more than a phrase, but a right that each one of us may choose to exercise at the end of our lives and, if necessary, at a time of our own choosing.”

  4. What if one Is simply tired of dealing with chronic illnesses and issues with aging? Does this meet your requirements for assistance? What criteria is used to deem an individual eligible to receive help? Would like
    know. I’m a former home health nurse and support euthanasia…but think it needs to be expanded to cover these issues as it is in europe.

  5. John spoke of FEN’s guiding principle: “that mentally competent adults who suffer from a fatal or irreversible physical illness, from intractable physical pain, or from a constellation of chronic, progressive physical disabilities have a basic human right to chose to end their lives when they judge the quality of their life to be unacceptable”. He said it was a pro-choice attitude, “deliberate life completion” to use the helium method to “choose self deliverance”, along w/ right to refuse treatment or advocating VSED (voluntary stopping of eating and drinking). Questions from the audience were about the specifics of the helium method, if you need a doctor to refer you to hospice, what about disabled people getting more help then FEN, what if you are in a Christian Hospital that doesn’t honor your wishes, whether Alzheimer’s is considered terminally ill.
