CA Suicide Law Use-6/24/18-1703-PMD
The California Department of Public Health reported on Friday that 577 patients requested and received aid-in-dying drugs in 2017. The report also stated that 374 of the patients used the drugs to end their lives. 2017 was the first full year the law was in effect in California. A judge halted the law this spring, but an appeals court has reinstated it.
