California Democrat Platform: The Party of Death with Dignity


2014 California Democrat Party Platform

To ensure death with dignity, we support the right of any competent adult, suffering intractable pain as a consequence of a fatal illness to obtain the assistance of medical doctors in painlessly ending her or his own life.  We support safeguards to ensure that this right of patient self-determination will not be misused by either family members or health care personnel, to precipitate the demise of any disabled person who desires to continue living.

We support reimbursement to doctors, including Medicare doctors and other healing professionals, who may utilize holistic treatment modalities when administering pain management protocols, including reimbursement when patients request voluntary consultation about end-of-life care.
