The following comes from a June 25 Compassion and Choices story:

On June 25, Latino labor leader and civil right activist Dolores Huerta publicly endorsed the End of Life Option Act (SB 128) and encouraged Latino legislators to vote for it. Her endorsement is critical because she is a leader in the labor, civil rights, and Latino communities. Several Latino legislators serve on the Assembly Health Committee, which is scheduled to vote on the bill July 7th.

“We are honored to have the support of Dolores Huerta because her endorsement carries great weight across California and especially in the Latino community,” said Toni Broaddus, California Campaign Director for Compassion & Choices. “We hope her leadership will help convince legislators who are on the fence about the importance of the legislation prior to the vote in the Assembly Health Committee.”

Huerta’s endorsement follows Tuesday’s release of a bipartisan poll conducted by Goodwin Simon Strategic Research and Probolsky Research showing 70 percent of Latino voters and 60 percent of Catholic voters support the End of Life Option Act.

  1. This is the same Dolores Huerta who received major awards from Planned Parenthood. The Left needed an Hispanic, once Catholic, icon and so they bought her out with tons of money so she and her family could live well.

  2. John Feeney says:

    In California it’s legal to kill unborn babies and will probably become legal to kill old people (SB128). Who’s next on the kill list?

  3. Don the Sage says:

    Calling Archbishop Gomez, Bishops Blair etal: Time to speak out and denounce one of the bad Hispanics. Are you you up to it?

  4. Judy Donovan says:

    So, now we are going to allow those who want to die in their own time. We are now taking away God’s decision on who should die and when! Just how many Bishops and Archbishops and Clergy are going to vote right along with the Devil in the White House to p ass this atrocity? What next and contrary to Hillary Clinton’s “What does it matter now”? Yes, it does matter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
