California's Right to Die Law on the Horizon

Hosted by

California may be about to adopt its own version of a “right-to-die” law. Yesterday, the End of Life Option Act cleared the State Assembly, and it’s expected to also be approved in the Senate. If the governor signs it, the law will take effect next year. The proposal gained attention last year when 29-year-old Brittany Maynard moved from California to Oregon to end her life. Oregon enacted its death with dignity laws nearly 20 years ago.
