• California to become sixth US state to allow euthanasia


    LOS ANGELES: California is set to become the sixth American state to approve euthanasia, a controversial issue in the United States fueled by the recent suicide of a woman suffering from terminal cancer. The measure, approved by 43 votes against 34, is expected to be adopted by the state senate this week. Euthanasia, or assisted suicide, has long been a controversial issue in the United States, with Montana, New Mexico, Oregon, Vermont and Washington the only states to have approved it so far.
