End Of Life Option Act Unconstitutionally Approved 05/15/18B 15:30 S.S.
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.
