title : Californians Warned That 'Vulnerable Will Be Killed' If Petition Drive To Reject End-of-Life Option Act Fails
summary : There was a move in California this week to repeal California's End of Life Option Act. The Californian petition drive to reject the End of Life Option Act fell short of the required number of signatures necessary to make it onto the ballot. The initiative would have allowed the people of California to decide if they wanted physician assisted suicide in their state or not. Though the bill was signed into law back in October by Governor Jerry Brown, it didn't officially go into effect until January 1 of this year.
