Is California Ready for Assisted Death? Over the last decade supporters of right-to-die laws have proposed a series of bills, all of which were emphatically opposed by the powerful, statewide doctors association Now a new bill is stalled in the state Senate, but this time it might have a chance. The California Medical Association dropped its opposition to SB 128 which would allow doctors to provide terminally ill patients drugs that would help them hasten their death. That’s not to say the Association is in favor of this right to die bill.
