California doctors group won’t oppose Monning’s end-of-life bill
Monterey Herald

California’s top doctors group said Wednesday it would stay neutral on a controversial bill allowing terminally ill Californians to end their own life.

The move by the California Medical Association was hailed by backers of the End of Life Options Act as a landmark step, and could boost the controversial legislation as it moves through the state Legislature. The bill would make California one of a handful of states nationwide to remove prohibitions on doctors aiding terminal patients in hastening their own deaths.
