(Worthy News) – A California judge on Tuesday overturned the state’s assisted suicide law on grounds that the state Legislature illegally passed the measure two years ago.
California’s End of Life Option Act allows terminally ill patients with six months or less to live to obtain medication that will kill them. But groups that oppose euthanasia sued the state over the law, arguing that its passage was unconstitutional because it was done during a special session back in 2015 that was supposed to be dedicated to health care funding.
The bill was placed in that special session after a state House committee pulled it from getting an open vote due to pressure from various religious, medical and disability rights groups. [ Source: UPI (Read More…) ]
