Week 23/2015 in the Death with Dignity Movement


Last week (June 1 to June 7, 2015) saw the most important event in our movement this year: the California Senate approved SB 128 – End of Life Option Act, a Death with Dignity bill.


Having been approved by the California Senate 23 to 14, the End of Life Option Act now heads to the Assembly with the first hearing, in the Health Committee, scheduled for June 22.


A proposed bill was heard and promptly tabled.

A new bill has been introduced in the New York Senate, by a Republican lawmaker, bringing the total to four (two in the Assembly, two in the Senate).


Though referring a bill for summer study is a roundabout way of killing a bill quietly, in Tennessee a Senate committee will discuss a proposed Death with Dignity bill.
