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).”
“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.”
