California Loosens the Stranglehold

Another Jurisdiction Sees Sense

The State of California is doing what others have done before it, namely loosening the ridiculous safeguards that surround its End of Life Option Act.

This means that another jurisdiction has realised that the medical model law it put in place is not working for everyone.

Reduction in wait time between mandated multiple oral requests for help from 15 days to 48 hours
Lifting of the 2026 sunset clause - making the law permanent
Elimination of the requirement that the patient make a written attestation within 48 hours of taking the drug.

If you are so sick that death is a preferable option, you would hardly want to be fussing around with this type of bureaucracy.

The only thing surprising in the 2017 study by Kaiser Permanente SC was that only 21% (and not more) of those surveyed cited the 'time-consuming process' associated with using the law as their reason for not pursuing their applications.
