California Democrats resurrect euthanasia bill for immediate vote

On July 7, I exulted that SB 128, California’s physician-assisted suicide bill that was passed by the state Senate, died in a state Assembly committee because Democrats had trouble finding enough votes to move the bill ahead, and that SB 128 was off the table for the rest of the year.

It turns out the exultation was short-lived because Demoncrats have resurrected the bill as ABX2-15, which is up for an immediate vote today.

The following comes from an August 31 email from Life Legal Defense Foundation (LLDF):

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!

A sample letter with talking points is available on LLDF web site.

SB 128 is now ABX2-15

69-year-old Lois Wolk is a California State Senator, representing the 3rd district of California. Wolk is a member of the Democratic Party and was elected to the Senate in 2008.

The Netherlands and Belgium show how physician-assisted suicide can be and is being abused, resulting in doctors killing people who are not terminally-ill, including the elderly, the young, the mentally ill, and babies. See:

Victory! CA assisted suicide bill is dead

UPDATE:

In a huge victory for pro-life advocates in California, SB 128, the physician-assisted suicide bill that was passed by the state Senate has died because Democrats had trouble finding enough votes in a state Assembly committee to move the bill ahead. SB 128 is reportedly off the table for the rest of the year! (Source)

SB 277

SB 128, California’s physician-assisted suicide bill, SB 128, is up for a hearing today, July 7.

SaveCalifornia.com has the information on what we can do to defeat the poisonous bill.

According to liberal Los Angeles Times columnist George Skelton, there are 6 Democrats on the California Assembly Health Committee who don’t like SB 128. Call them now, and tell them to vote “NO” on SB 128:

  1. Lorena Gonzalez of San Diego: (916) 319-2080
  2. Jimmy Gomez of downtown Los Angeles: (916) 319-2051
  3. Roger Hernández of West Covina: (916) 319-2048
  4. Freddie Rodriguez of Pomona/Chino: (916) 319-2052
  5. Miguel Santiago of downtown Los Angeles: (916) 319-2053
  6. Sebastian Ridley-Thomas of Culver City: (916) 319-2054

Also call these 2 Republicans from San Diego County on the committee:

  1. Brian Maienschein (916) 319-2077
  2. Rocky Chávez (916) 319-2076

Do the math: If all 6 Republicans on the 19-member committee vote no, and at least 4 Democrats vote no or abstain, SB 128 will fail to achieve a majority vote and will instead be defeated, preventing California from becoming the Suicide State.

TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION. Call these assemblymembers right now and say, “Oppose SB 128. Please vote no!”

Refer them to The Netherlands and Belgium, where physician-assisted suicide is resulting in doctors killing people who are not terminally-ill, including the elderly, the young, the mentally ill, and babies. See:
