California bishops disappointed assisted suicide measure signed into law

 | 

California's bishops expressed disappointment with Gov. Jerry Brown's Monday signing of a measure legalizing physician-assisted suicide in the state, saying the law "stands in direct contradiction to providing compassionate, quality care for those facing a terminal illness."

"This bill does nothing to validate the lives of the vulnerable," said the California Catholic Conference, the public policy arm of the state's bishops, in a statement soon after Brown's action.
