About Final Exit Network:

Final Exit Network is a registered non profit organization that operates throughout the United States. (We do not operate outside of the U.S., however you may go to the World Federation of Right to Die Society's website for international information.)  

We believe in death with dignity and an individual's right to self determination. We are the only organization that publicly provides education on all end of life choices as well as a compassionate presence to those who are suffering from incurable diseases and have chosen to end their suffering. We do not put an artificial requirement for an individual to be certified as likely to die in six months. Suffering does not recognize that restriction and neither do we. 

To ensure that the maximum amount of your money is used to alleviate suffering we operate virtually, conducting our administrative business as much as possible through technology. Outreach to individuals seeking information from us is done entirely through volunteers and almost all our travel is done for that exclusive purpose. 

Final Exit Network is a national, nonprofit, 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt corporation.

Gifts and memberships to Final Exit Network are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

On June 20, 2015, the Final Exit Network board voted to mount an appeal to reverse the recent Minnesota court decision.
We believe that our exit guide services, our belief that death with dignity is a personal choice, and that end-of-life education are all 
protected by the first amendment of the United States. The first step for this appeal is through the Minnesota Court of Appeals.

HASTINGS, Minnesota, August 24, 2015 — Final Exit Network was 
sentenced to pay a $30,000 fine today for “assisting in a suicide” in connection 
with the 2007 self-deliverance of a member. 

Judge Christian Wilton sentenced the organization to the maximum fine. 
Final Exit Network was convicted on May 14 of assisting in a suicide, a 
felony punishable by a fine of $30,000, and of interfering with a body or the scene 
of a death with the intent to mislead the coroner, a misdemeanor, which is 
punishable by a fine of $3,000. 

It had been previously reported many times that the maximum fine faced by 
Final Exit Network was $33,000. However, during the sentencing hearing, the 
State elected not to seek the separate $3,000 fine for the misdemeanor. 

The State also sought the payment of $2,975.63 as “restitution” to the 
family of Doreen Dunn, 57, as the “victims” of the “crime.” The amount 
represented the sum spent by Mark Dunn, the decedent’s husband for her burial 
and headstone. Testimony at the trial indicated Dunn had long-standing plans to 
separate from his wife and move from their home. Ironically, his belongings were 
in boxes on the day of her death, waiting to be moved out the next day.  

While the Network might have objected to the payment of “restitution,” the 
organization’s attorney, Robert Rivas, said to the court, “It is a family’s sacred 
obligation to pay to bury their loved ones, but if Mr. Dunn doesn’t want to have to 
pay for his wife’s burial, Final Exit Network will pay it for him.” 

“We intend to vigorously appeal this for two reasons. One is the importance 
of protecting all Americans’ free speech rights from encroachment by the 
government, but the second is to continue our advocacy for competent adults to 
have the right to make their own end-of-life decisions,” said Janis Landis, the 
Network’s president, who attended the hearing. Gary Wederspahn, the newest FEN 
board member, who happens to be from Hastings, Minnesota, also attended the 
sentencing hearing. 

Judge Wilton put the Network on “probation” until the fine is paid, and the 
Network would be legally prohibited from providing Exit Guide services while on 
probation. Landis said the Network is unwilling to deny Exit Guide services to 
those in Minnesota for any length of time, and the fine will therefore be paid
