Final Exit Network
The Final Exit Network is promoting itself with a billboard on Interstate 75 in South Florida. The group will fly helicopters over the Washington-Baltimore area scrolling a similar message this weekend.

Helicopters carrying illuminated signs that read "Die With Dignity" will be in the air over the Baltimore-Washington region this weekend.

They're part of a campaign by the Final Exit Network, a group that says it only counsels adults afflicted with incurable illnesses who want to end their lives.

Several of its members are facing criminal charges related to assisted suicides.

Part of the self-described "Right to Die" movement, the network has posted billboards across the country that read "My Life, My Death, My Choice."

WAMU's Rebecca Blatt spoke with board member Frank Kavanaugh about the network's mission.
