It was reported today in the Eureka Times-Standard that the California Democratic Party recently adopted a resolution in support of physician-assisted suicide.
According to the resolution, Democrats are in favor of securing the right to "death with dignity" for all Californians. It was adopted by the state party's executive board this past weekend.
The resolution backs adoption of a law that would offer dying patients the right to hasten their death with the help of prescription drugs, and notes that some safeguards should be in place to prevent abuse. Supported by the party's Disability Caucus, the resolution also includes a statement about the need to ensure the protection and rights of people with disabilities.
