Despite California being one of the most liberal States in the U.S., State law doesn’t allow terminal ill people, like Brittany Maynard, to die with dignity. Just in three states - Oregon, Vermont and Washington - people can request a euthanasia procedure. Oregon voters approved the death with dignity law in 1994, while in Washington the law passed in 2008. Vermont lawmakers enacted the assisted death law in 2013, the first case of this kind of act passing through legislation.
Brittany Maynard was a 29-year old terminal brain cancer patient who chose to take medication to end her life under Oregon’s ‘Death with Dignity’ act. Cases like hers make a clear statement how much California and the whole U.S. need to evolve the legislation concerning this matter.
