    California's assisted suicide law tossed

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. --
    A California judge on Tuesday threw out a 2016 state law allowing the terminally ill to end their lives, ruling it was unconstitutionally approved by the Legislature.

    Riverside County Superior Court Judge Daniel Ottolia did not rule on the legality of allowing physician-assisted death, but he issued an oral ruling saying lawmakers acted illegally in passing the law during a special session devoted to other topics, said lawyers for supporters and opponents.


    Ottolia kept the law in place and gave the state attorney general five days to appeal. Attorney General Xavier Becerra's office did not immediately respond to calls and emails seeking comment.

    Suicide is Murder. Thus it should not be accepted.

    What if you are so debilitated that you cannot even kill yourself and suffering? I believe it should require a very clear mind or very clear previous advance directives , however I believe the practice has it's place. Further health care cost will drive more and more such laws. Consented euthanasia is coming.
