Californians will continue to have a "right to die" until January 1, 2031 after Governor Gavin Newsom signed into law October 5 a six-year extension of the Golden State's End of Life Option Act.

It offers residents with incurable diseases the option to take their own lives rather than suffer unbearably painful deaths or face spending their final months or years in a vegetative state they won't wake up from.

The law went into effect June 9, 2016, authorizing the compassionate option of medical aid in dying for terminally ill, mentally capable adults who are given a prescription to end their life peacefully.
