Sacramento, CA - Californians Against Assisted Suicide spokesperson Tim Rosales, responded to the AB2x15 (Eggman) passage in the State Assembly with the following coalition statement:

"We appreciated many eloquent statements of assisted suicide opposition from progressive legislators representing low income districts. The bipartisan opposition and narrow Assembly vote indicates that there are still so many unanswered and troubling issues with this bill as it's rushed through this special session.

"This bill remains opposed by groups representing people living with disabilities, cancer doctors, people advocating for the poor and uninsured and faith based organizations."
