Our California Assisted Dying Bill
"Two well-respected California assembly members, Lloyd Levine of Van Nuys and Patty Berg of Santa Rosa, have notified their colleagues that they intend to introduce an aid-in-dying bill fashioned after Oregon's proven model next year.

We are looking for first person stories to demonstrate that end-of-life care without assisted dying is inadequate. The best stories:
Contact Claire Simons at Compassion if you are willing to tell your story to your assembly member: email@example.com or 503.221.9556.
