Assisted Suicide Bill in California

Just as a heads-up since, like they say, what starts on the coasts moves its way inward:

Assisted Suicide Bill Coming Up in California

State Assembly Bill 654, introduced by Democrats Patty Berg and Lloyd Levine in February, is scheduled for an April 12 hearing and possible vote in the Assembly Judiciary Committee.

According to its text, the bill would authorize mentally competent adults who have been diagnosed with a terminal disease to request medication for the purpose of ending their lives in a humane and dignified manner.

It would also give doctors immunity from civil or criminal liability or professional disciplinary action for prescribing lethal doses of drugs in good-faith compliance with the act.
One more way for the government to replace God.
