This legislation will weaken patient protections in the already existing assisted suicide law. The move follows the usual path of physician-assisted suicide laws in other states and nations – promise protections and limits, then gradually strip those away. 

Specifically, SB 380 (Eggman, D-Stockton) would: 

  • Prematurely end the existing 2025 sunset date and legislative reevaluation option years early with little to no scientific data to support this action (especially in light of the worldwide pandemic); 
  • Stop future oversight or evaluation of annual  reports about assisted suicide requests and their    outcomes. (Existing reports do not contain any data regarding complications, reasons for requesting the lethal drugs, and for the limited data provided, much is listed as “unknown.”)
  • Remove the 15-day waiting period “safeguard.”
