California governor Jerry Brown signed into law yesterday a bill (SB 282) that allows any person to “aid, advise, and encourage” suicide under the state’s assisted suicide law. Until now, these actions were felonies, as the state had a longstanding policy to protect people from self-harm.
The bill was introduced in the wake of Life Legal’s challenge to California’s End of Life Option Act. We have said from the outset that physician-assisted suicide is only the beginning.
