While some are hailing the measure as humanitarian, others are claiming that it only adds to a host of other laws and policy changes that are creating the impression among many that human life is no longer sacrosanct, no matter what.

Last October, Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown of California signed new legislation permitting terminally ill people to request medication that will kill them from a doctor, otherwise known as “assisted suicide.”

Shortly after Brown signed the bill, there was some confusion among the public about when it would actually take effect, due to the unusual manner in which the bill was passed – in an “extraordinary session” of the legislature called by Brown himself. Under such conditions, any law that is passed cannot take effect for 90 days after that session is adjourned.

The session just closed March 9, meaning that the End of Life Option Act will now go into effect June 9, NPR reported the following day.

“We’re glad to finally have arrived at this day where we have a date certain,” said Sen. Bill Monning, D-Carmel.
