Here is the California law, called the natural death act. This is what I was given by the California code of law search engine. It seems to recognize this purpose for patients in a medical facility with strict regulation for procedures of deciding to terminate ones life. (Validation by a certain quota of Dr.s etc.)

Any other documents I discovered were too graphic for me to read fully.
