Local Woman with Terminal Disease Fights
Proposed Assisted-Suicide Law
A broad coalition of concerned citizens, medical associations, and disability rights groups have joined advocates for the terminally ill in opposing California’s End of Life Option Act, SB 128, which was introduced to the state legislature on January 21. Based on Oregon’s successfully enforced assisted-suicide law, the California legislation would permit physician-assisted suicide for terminal patients with 6 months or less to live. These groups and individuals oppose the proposed legislation on religious, moral and ethical grounds.
