San Francisco Chronicle

The family of aid-in-dying advocate Brittany Maynard made an emotional plea Wednesday for Californians to join them in supporting a bill introduced in the state Legislature that would allow terminally ill patients to decide when enough is enough. “Californians, you now have an opportunity to bring this option to this state,” said Maynard’s mother, Debbie Ziegler, as she fought back tears inside the state Capitol. “Let your voice be heard, even if your voice shakes, like mine. Please help me carry out my daughter’s legacy.”
