ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON END-OF-LIFE LEGISLATION

Camille Giglio

8/9/2018. Walnut Creek, Ca. This is a continuation of the end-of life legislation reported on one day ago. Most of these bills are in either the Assembly or Senate Appropriations Suspense Files because though the legislators like them they cost too much taxpayers dollars.

They have one more week before a final up or down vote. Call or fax or email both your Senator and your Assembly member. Go to www.leginfo.ca.gov, find the name of your legislator and you will see ways to contact that member. DO NOT SEND SNAIL MAIL.

  • AB282 Suicide: Exemption from Prosecution. It is still alive. Continue to call your Senator and your Assembly member.
     
  • Though the Senate Appropriations voted out this bill. It was re-referred to the Senate Rules Committee due to concerns over wording. Further amendments to the bill will be suggested to the author. It is now back on the Assembly floor for a concurrence vote and on to the Governor.
     
  • IF THERE IS NO PROTEST THE BILL WILL GO DIRECTLY THEN TO THE GOVERNOR. CALL YOUR ASSEMBLY MEMBER NOW AND EVERY DAY IF YOU HAVE TO.
     
  • AB2233, Ash Kalra, MediCal: Assisted Living Waiver Program. A Waier program means that the state is asking to be relieved of some requirement of the original bill. This appears to effect the financial status provider reimbursement of those who are stakeholders in the Assisted Living services. Apparently they want a raise. IN SENATE APPROPRIATIONS SUSPENSE FILE.
     
  • AB3211, Ash Kalra, (D-S.Jose) Advance Health Care Directive.
     
  • Here is the bill wording which concerns us.
     
  • First is the initial statement of “Upon my death,” which may mean one thing to the donor and another thing to the organ procurement team that may define death as brain death and not as a totality of heart and lung failure.
     
  • Secondly is a very generic “generally accepted health care standards” which may in one hospital be withdrawal of food and fluids and in another the provision of food and fluids.
     
  • Cf. (b) Choice To Prolong Life.
     
  • I want my life to be prolonged as long as possible within the limits of generally accepted health care standards.
     
  • California Right to Life would add now:
     
  • Health Care standards in California are dropping drastically due to the mandate to save costs of care. A question to the legislators: if costs are saved where does that saved money go? Will they send it back to the tax paying citizens, or will it go for other social and emotional, health care for all invasion of family and privacy and be used to teach all that stuff to school students. In other words, what friends of the legislators will be getting the money henceforth?
     
  • THIS IS STILL IN THE SENATE APPROPRIATIONS. IT HAS UNTIL NEXT WEEK FOR A HEARING BEFORE BEING SENT TO THE GOVERNOR.
     
  • SB987, Cathleen Galgiani, Organ and Tissue Donation Registry.
     
  • This concerns changes to the driver’s license identity card which at its next scheduled revision will contain a statement informing the applicant that by marking “I do not wish to register to be an organ or tissue donor at this time” the applicant had better also have this statement in one’s health care directive or else someone else , family or designated ombudsman will be making the decision about whether or not your organs are scheduled for removal at your life’s expense.
     
  • AB2923, David Chiu, San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District.
     
  • This bill has been included with the end-of-life issues because of its management of people, their housing and transportation.
     
  • Moving certain groups of people into dense housing conditions, low-income, ethnic,, disabled, elderly, etc centered around distribution of social services and other government programs facilitates the government’s ability to obtain a closer watch, more hands-on control of the daily lives of its citizens. This will facilitate the government agencies to quickly discern who is advanced in age, who is disabled, who is pregnant, who is not following the planned nutrition program.
     
  • While it’s certainly true that more housing is needed for this vast invasion of legal and illegal immigrants, it does not necessarily stand that the rest of us have to give up our standard of living to accommodate theirs.

IN CALIFORNIA ASSISTED LIVING MEANS WOMB
TO TOMB HEALTH CARE FOR ALL

Camille Giglio

Walnut Creek. Ca, 8/7/2018.  One has cause to wonder who is really running this state, the elected officials, the media, or left-leaning non-profits. Or, maybe it’s a partnership of all three.

The East Bay Times Monday, August 6th edition ran an article that was actually a promotion for legislation which if enacted will not be beneficial to human beings or their living conditions. . this sort of thing happens quite frequently. We urge you to consider contacting your own state elected representatives between now and August 16 to OPPOSE this and other bills.

  • In Contra Costa County: Senator Steve Glazer, (D)  916-651-4007/Fax 916-651-4907.
  • Assembly woman Catharine Baker(R) 916-319-2016/Fax 916-319-2116.
  • Assembly member Tim Grayson, (D-Concord) 916-319-2014/Fax 916-319-2114
  • Call the Senate Appropriations Committee, starting now. 916-651-4101. Tell them you OPPOSE the following two bills that are in the Suspense file.

Ab282, Suicide Exemption from Prosecution by Reginald B. Jones-Sawyer (D-L.A.)

The purpose of this bill is to protect persons whose actions are compliant with the End of Life Option Act from being prosecuted for deliberately aiding, advising, or encouraging suicide.

The legislature saw to it that suicide was removed from the books as a crime, (end-of-life option act of 2015 – AB15×2) but they “forgot” to protect from criminal penalties the one who cajoles, pressures, encourages and advises the patient to commit self extermination (there is no official suicide anymore for people who sign a POLST form for their designated representative.)

The author claims that the purpose of this bill is to act as just a technical “cleanup.”

Apparently there is a package of bills employing the excuse of a technical clean-up to tighten and cement the state approved planned end-of-life policy for all California residents.

  • SB937, Susan Eggman author, , clarifying the priorities in conflicting orders – the POLST form apparently taking precedent.
  • SB481 by Richard Pan, Successor Agencies: Assets: Disposal. To the Governor.
  • AB3211 Ash Kalra, Advance Health Care Directives – AHCD.
  • This bill is dangerous. It, apparently, amends this state provided form, using an opt-out policy for organ donations. In other words, it will be assumed that the patient wants to be an organ donor unless a specific box is checked on the health care directive. The author states that the form is unclear on the directives in its current state.
  • SB987, Galgiani (D) addresses questions and confusions in regard to Driver’s Licenses and organ donation.  CALL YOUR STATE SENATOR AND URGE A NO VOTE

All these bills have passed out of committees with little or no official opposition vote from either a Democrat or a Republican.

The basic purpose of these clean-up bills will be to require the development of educational material for distribution to potential suicide clients along with the expanded availability of POLST forms – Physician Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment to be required for everyone (even the name is a deception.

The bill seeks to expand the acceptance of POLST forms and the practice of suicide to Medi-Cal and Medicaid patients. Their initial objective is to reach about 18,000 Medi-Cal recipients..

Planned Parenthood is in charge of who gets born and when and the suicide promoters will be in charge of how and when the abortion survivors  experience their delayed planned death.

BART. Housing bills on agenda. San Jose Mercury News, 8-6-2018

  • AB 2923 by David Chiu, (D-SF) BART. This bill will expand land grabs by BART to expand BART’s ownership of land around their stations (including 20,000 new mainly condos and apartments with affordable housing set-asides). This will give the state  tremendous control over housing and transportation. The Bay Area News Group thinks this is a great idea.
     
  • AB2923 will affect, for now, 4 of the 9 counties surrounding the San Francisco Bay. The Cities of Lafayette and Pleasant Hill appear to be the only cities in Contra Costa County fighting this bill.  AB2923could take this land, apparently by eminent domain, This is the Affordable Care Act. Obama lives on in law.

Call the Senate Appropriations Committee to oppose. Being In suspense means that there is too much state money involved in funding this bill. Besides, BART as it is operated now is a tax guzzling, poorly managed, unsanitary transportation company.

 


 
 
Take away God, all respect for civil laws, all regard for even the most necessary institutions disappears; justice is scouted; the very liberty that belongs to the law of nature is trodden underfoot; and men go so far as to destroy the very structure of the family, which is the first and firmest foundation of the social structure.
