The  California  State  Attorney  General  now  has  5  days  to  appeal  a  California  judge’s  ruling  that  a  2016  law  (allowing  terminally  ill  people  to  end  their  lives)  was  unconstitutionally  approved.    The  End  Of  Life  Option  Act  allows terminally  ill  adults  to  obtain  a  prescription  for  life-ending  drugs  if  a  doctor  has  determined  they  have  6 months  or  less  to  live.    Riverside  county  superior  court  judge  Daniel  Ottolia  issued  an  oral  ruling  today  saying  lawmakers  acted  illegally  in  passing  the  law during  a  special  session  that  was  devoted  to  other  topics.    California  was  the  5th   state  in  the  nation  to  approve  such  a  law.    In  California,   the  writing  of  such  lethal  prescriptions  is  completely  voluntary.
