United States

Mary Ewert is the Executive Director of Final Exit Network. Her passion for the right to die grew from personal experience as the primary caregiver for her husband who, following a diagnosis of rapidly advancing ALS, traveled to Dignitas in Switzerland where he achieved a peaceful death on his own terms. She earned a PhD in law and an MSc in International and European Politics while studying in England and Scotland. Mary has appeared as a spokesperson for FEN on webinars and podcasts and spoke about her experience at screenings of The Suicide Tourist, a PBS Frontline documentary about her husband’s travel to Dignitas in several Canadian and European cities.
