A California Senate committee vote Wednesday approving physician-assisted suicide in the state received a swift and disapproving response from the executive director of the California Catholic Conference.
The vote by the Senate Health Committee is "sad and disappointing," said CCC executive director Ned Dolejsi. Senate Bill 128, endorsed by the committee in a 6-2 vote, now goes to the Senate Judiciary Committee. If approved there, it will be debated by the full Senate. The Assembly will hold its own hearings on "right to die" legislation.
