California Assisted Suicide Bill Stalled in Assembly Health Committee

On July 7, 2015, members of the California Assembly Health Committee pulled the bill after lack of support due to serious concerns about the bill.

Physician Assisted suicide legislation has been introduced in 24 states, To date, none of these bills have passed. A NJ bill (A2270/S382) passed the full Assembly in November of 2014 and was released from the Senate Health Committee on December 15, 2014 without recommendation.  It is still pending a full vote in the NJ Senate.Since January, 2015, physician assisted suicide legislation was defeated in Connecticut, Maryland, Delaware, Colorado, Wyoming, Maine Utah, Rhode Island and Nevada.

Please continue to call, email and meet with your State Senator to urge him/her to Vote No on A2270/S382.  Please also call the Governor 609 292 6000 and urge him to veto this bill if it reaches his desk. Thank you.
