This bill would:
- Exempt from criminal prosecution "aiding, advising, or encouraging" physician-assisted suicide."
- Allow someone who could financially benefit from your death to actually sign an order giving you suicide pills.
- AB 282 allows murder for profit by permitting a person who could financially benefit from a patient`s death to request the lethal dose of drugs.
BILL STATUS: This bill is working its way through the California State Senate and can be voted upon anytime after the summer break - starting August 6. (It has already passed the state assembly.)
