The “End of Life Option Act” was reintroduced in the Assembly as ABX2-15 as part of the special session called by the governor.
All bills heard during special sessions must reach the governor’s desk in three weeks — Sept. 11 for ABX2-15.
I urge supporters to immediately contact our assemblyman, Katcho Achadjian, and ask for his “aye” vote. I met with Katcho in June and found him to be very openminded and an excellent listener.
Requesting Katcho’s support for ABX2-15 can be done by:
Calling his office at 549-3381 for an in-person meeting (he’s in on Fridays), or to ask for his “aye” vote.
Dropping in at his San Luis Obispo office at 1150 Osos St., Suite 207.
Sending an email to assemblyman. Achadjian@assembly.ca.gov.
ABX2-15 is a landmark civil rights bill that would allow terminally-ill adults with the mental capacity to make medical decisions in the final stages of their disease to request medication from a physician to bring about a peaceful death.
Californians should be free to choose how they die.
This private, personal decision must be free from governmental interference.
