Californians have improved end-of-life options since 2015.

The End of Life Option Act is a California law that permits terminally ill adult patients with capacity to make medical decisions to be prescribed an aid-in-dying medication if certain conditions are met. Signed into law by Governor Brown in October 2015, the law went into effect on June 9, 2016. California was the fifth state to enact an aid-in-dying law. ABOUT THE LAW
