California Approves Assisted Suicide [VIDEO]

Gov. Jerry Brown approved an end-of-life measure Monday that allows physicians to prescribe lethal doses of drugs to quicken the deaths of terminally ill patients. Brown, a former Jesuit seminary student, said he had difficulty in approving the assisted-suicide law and had to “reflect on what I would want in the face of my own death.” California is now the fifth state to permit assisted suicide, following Vermont, Oregon, Montana, and Washington.
