I saw in the local news that California had passed a new law making it legal to do physician assisted suicide. Does anyone know the details? Does this cover the medic if the patient wants to be frozen? I understand the law makes it a felony to coerce someone into suicide. Does this threaten those who would introduce, or perhaps recommend, cryonics to a terminal patient?
