California Right to Die Law

This email may be of general interest.

Some of us were talking at the last caregiver support group meeting as to whether the governor would sign the right to die legislation (“End of Life Option Act”) that was passed by the legislature this summer.  Gov. Jerry Brown did indeed sign the legislation last week.  There is at least one person in our local support group with a neurological diagnosis who feels relieved to have this available as an option, should he want to pursue it.

Here’s a good San Jose Mercury News article about the subject.
