California shouldn't scrap 'safeguards' in End of Life Options Act
Assisted suicide is already legal in California through the so-called End of Life Option Act, narrowly passed by the California Legislature and signed by then-Gov. Jerry Brown in 2015. The bill received opposition from both Democrat and Republican Assembly members and state senators but was passed, many feel inappropriately, during a Special Legislative Session focused on Medi-Cal funding.

La oleada en la frontera, la más alta de los últimos 20 años, está poniendo en tensión los desatendidos sistemas de migrantes y refugiados de Estados Unidos, que fueron diseñados para tratar humanamente a los refugiados que buscan asilo.
