Doctors’ group opposes changes to proposed aid-in-dying bill
Los Angeles Times

A second attempt to pass an aid-in-dying bill goes before a key legislative committee Tuesday, but it already has suffered a setback as the California Medical Assn. is warning it will oppose the measure if proposed amendments are added.

The bill would allow physicians in California to prescribe lethal doses of drugs to terminally ill patients who could then hasten the end of their lives.
