One of the many laws that Governor Gavin Newsome is about to sign into law is SB-380 which will make it easier for terminal patients to end their own life.  In 2016, California became one of a small number of states to allow people to end their lives with a prescription from a doctor.  Now that the public has come to accept the concept, lawmakers are streamlining the process.  Instead of requiring that the patient make two separate requests for fatal medicines 15 days apart, the person can now make the requests only two days apart.  The new law will also eliminate the need for a written statement from the patient.
