Running a nonprofit organization with worldwide visibility like ERGO (Euthanasia Research & Guidance Organization) requires funding for research and education.

As one example of our work, every day ERGO responds to dozens of students who approach us for information for their school projects. And our international electronic mailing list that is sent to more than 1,000 organizations and people requires hours of work and constant expenditure on systems and software.

ERGO is now the chief financial sponsor of the New Technology Research Group (NuTech) which is trying to find legal, painless ways of self-deliverance from a terminal or hopeless illness.

ERGO wishes to see physician-assisted suicide become lawful everywhere, but until that day some people want to know how to end it themselves. Anyway, even under a legal system not everybody qualifies for medical assistance.

ERGO will fight for that right to be in command of one's death. But it requires knowledge.

Thus we are turning ERGO from a supporters' organization to a membership organization. ERGO membership fee is a minimum of $25 annually or whatever you might wish to pay above that.

While you are joining ERGO please also consider subscribing to ERGO's International Right-to-Die News Service mailing list (free listserv). Subscribe to the list and/or obtain more information by visiting the ERGO Right-to-Die News web page.

Thank you for joining ERGO!
