The following comes from an August 31 email from Life Legal Defense Foundation:
Democrats in the California legislature are perverting the normal legislative process and bringing SB 128 (now called ABX2-15) – the Physician-Assisted Suicide bill – up for an immediate vote on Tuesday
Even Governor Brown has harshly criticized the end-run around the Assembly Health Committee. In a surprise, bipartisan move, Southern California Democrats on the Health Committee promised to vote against the bill in July, causing Lois Wolk, the bill’s author, to take it off calendar for the rest of the legislative session.
Now the bill is back – reintroduced in a special legislative session on health care. This time, it faces a much friendlier committee that is likely to approve the bill for a full floor vote.
Please act today by contacting your assemblymembers immediately to urge them to vote ‘no’ on ABX2-15. Do you use twitter? Please tweet!
