Judge Overturns California Law Legalizing Assisted Suicide

A California judge has overturned the state’s law legalizing assisted suicide, ruling it unconstitutional.

The judge indicated the legislature improperly passed the state law during a special session that was supposed to be specifically devoted to Medicare funding. The judge ruled that the state legislature should not have approved the assisted-suicide law during that special session because the subject of the law fell outside the grounds of the special session.

Euthanasia activists argued in court that assisted suicide is health care and that made it appropriate for the special session. More than 100 people have killed themselves under the law.

They got them on a technicality, let's hope they can prevent such a law in the future as well.
“I was supportive of and campaigned for President Trump in 2016, and I am very encouraged with the substantive policy victories we are getting, whether it is an historic tax cut bill, whether it is regulatory reform that’s unleashing jobs, whether it is repealing the Obamacare individual mandate — which I led the fight to do in the United States Senate — whether it is nominating and confirming strong constitutionalists to the courts. ..." - Cruz

This is Cali.  There is no way this Judge's finding will survive in the Supreme Court of California.  But...fingers crossed.
I will NOT comply.
Thanks to Cripplecreek and Oceander for the medal!

A few years ago, I was reading some Canadian news and people commenting on the story, I assume they were Canadians, and maybe they were out trolling for what they believed in, but they were saying comments like "If I'm in some kind of shape with a terminable disease, I hope I can end it" and things like that regarding Canada's assisted suicide type of law.
