download PDF (41.2 kibibytes) This discussion will provide information on the background of the Act including attempts by religious groups to derail the legislation as well as how religious groups attempt to prevent individuals from utilizing the Act. The presentation will also include the process of how to utilize the Act to obtain Medical Aid in Dying in California. The purpose of Medical Aid in Dying is to allow more people to have a peaceful death at home with loved ones, with pain and discomfort managed and to have spiritual needs and values respected. It allows terminally ill, mentally capable adults to control their dying process by requesting medication that will shorten a difficult and unbearable dying process. Utilizing this law will not invalidate wills, contracts, or insurance as it is not considered suicide. Please join us for a discussion of this important topic.

Susan earned her BA, Masters, and Ed.D degrees from UCLA. She has been an active volunteer with Compassion and Choices for several years and is now serving as an Orange County Co-Action Team Leader with Steph Campbell making community presentations to inform the public about the specific terms of the California End of Life Option Act. Susan is committed to helping to establish the normalization of medical aid in dying as an acceptable option for terminally ill patients in our state. Steph Campbell is also president of the Orange County Chapter of Americans United for Separation of Church and State.
