Week 36/2015 in the Death with Dignity Movement


Last week (August 31 to September 6, 2015) Californians got another step closer to having Death with Dignity as an end-of-life option when the state Assembly’s Extraordinary Session Public Health and Developmental Services Committee on approved AB2X-15, the California End of Life Option Act, on a 10 to 3 vote. The finance committee later approved the bill on a 5 to 3 vote; the same day University of California Berkeley’s Institute for Governmental Studies released a poll showing support for the bill now stands at nearly 76%. The bill will be debated and voted on in the full Assembly this week.

In New Mexico, the State Supreme Court has scheduled oral arguments, for October 26, in the lawsuit recently decided by the appeals court which struck down a lower court’s ruling that physician assisted dying was legal in the state.
