A lawsuit was filed in federal court to protect the rights of people with disabilities by permanently enjoining California’s assisted suicide law.

Organizational Plaintiffs: Not Dead Yet, United Spinal Association, Communities Actively Living Independent & Free, and Institute For Patients Rights


The system is broken, inequities in healthcare abound, and insurers care more about their bottom line than people.

Throughout modern history to the present day, the lives of people with disabilities have been devalued in a society that sees our lives as less worth living, less worthy of scarce medical resources and healthcare dollars, better off dead.

We are individuals with disabilities and non-profit organizations that work for disability and patient rights. As we find ourselves fighting for healthcare equity – the basic care, long term services and supports, and durable medical equipment we need to live – enter California’s so-called ‘End of Life Options Act’ (EOLOA).

Under EOLOA, people with life-threatening disabilities and only people with life-threatening disabilities who say they want to die can get a state-facilitated death. Everyone else gets suicide prevention and the protections afforded by the law and professional standards. That’s not choice, it’s eugenics.
