I read an excellent article by Marilyn Golden in the Capitol Weekly online explaining why California’s Bill AB 2747 that is sponsored by Patti Berg needs to be defeated.
Marilyn Golden is a Policy Analyst at the Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund (DREDF) which is the leading center on policy and law in relation to disability rights in the U.S.
Golden effectively explains how AB 2747 represents a change in strategy for the euthanasia lobby group compassion and choices (C & C). C & C have made several attempts to legalize assisted suicide since 2005.
Bill AB 2747 is designed to pave the way for the legalization of assisted suicide in California.
As a point of interest, there is a similar bill in Vermont that is also being sponsored by the euthanasia lobby groups.
