Javier Magallanes's curator insight, September 15, 2015 6:14 PM

"California Legislature Approves Assisted Suicide" an article by Ian Lovette explains about how California has passed a legislature to hava doctors give terminally ill patients pills to help end their life. I choose this article because I thought it was really controversial and interesting. in the article the leader of "death with dignity" tells about how its a good thing that this legislature passed because "It allows for individual liberty and freedom, freedom of choice". This was a very strong statement to me because its talking about ending a life and I feel like there playing god. This source is credible because it is published by the New York times and they are known for publishing factual information.
