EXIT - FASTACCESS - A STARTING POINT
Probably the Web's largest resource for euthanasia information and informed comment
Please note: we are primarily a research organisation; we do not offer one-to-one guidance on euthanasia
Welcome to Fast Access - possibly the world's largest resource of original material on voluntary euthanasia, assisted suicide, self-deliverance, living wills (advance declarations to enable you to refuse unwanted life-prolonging treatment) and related death and dying subject matter.
Many groups campaign for legal change. (Bills for voluntary euthanasia have been proposed since 1935.) Such laws, if passed, will help future generations. But what about people living NOW? People facing an unknown future and without the means to choose the time and manner of their dying.
EXIT's RESEARCH IS ABOUT THE PRESENT NOW.Our work can be found in legal reference manuals (such as LexisNexis) and in the British Medical Journal. Our lay-publications for responsible adults are sold on Amazon and deal with scientific material on euthanasia, assisted suicide and living wills. However, it is not a one-sided approach: our background also includes academia, legal training, and certification in suicide prevention and palliative care.
We are not connected with the Australian society called "Exit International".
This site contains hundreds of pages of material explaining the arguments for and against euthanasia. It was produced by Exit (the original Exit, also called the Scottish Voluntary Euthanasia Society), which agrees that a change in the law is desirable to promote and protect individual patient choice; and prioritizes research into self-deliverance, self-euthanasia, to empower people who will not live long enough to see the law changed. People who, in the absence of lawful assistance, seek peaceful and dignified methods of self-euthanasia within the law.
You can also find information or links on here to our authoritative works on self-deliverance, including Departing Drugs, Beyond Final Exit, Five Last Acts II and The Exit Path.
(for local versions of Amazon, replace “.com” with “co.uk” and so on.)
The Exit Path is the largest resource in
print. Full coverage of NITROGEN, HELIUM,

"Every one of us has an interest in our own death: a change in the law could increase our options. Until then, learning how to plan can take away any fear of death."
