Three California lawmakers are promoting right-to-die legislation with the family of a terminally ill woman who moved to Oregon to legally end her life.

Brittany Maynard’s mother and husband will be at the state Capitol on Wednesday to support a bill that would allow terminally ill patients to end their lives in California.

The 29-year-old Northern California woman had brain cancer. She argued in online videos that patients facing imminent death should be able to die on their own terms.
