  • Directed and Produced by: Peter D. Richardson



Released: 2011

In 1994, Oregon became the first state to legalize physician-assisted suicide. As a result, any individual whom two physicians diagnose as having less than six months to live can lawfully request a fatal dose of barbiturate to end his or her life. In HOW TO DIE IN OREGON, filmmaker Peter Richardson gently enters the lives of the terminally ill as they consider whether – and when – to end their lives by lethal overdose. 

With profound intimacy and unprecedented access to patients, doctors, social workers and historical figures, HOW TO DIE IN OREGON examines one of the foremost medical, ethical, and legal issues of our time. The film offers educators, students and academics invaluable insight into this unique law.
