On February 11th, DRLC filed a lawsuit in San Francisco Superior Court to clarify the ability of mentally competent, terminally ill California patients to obtain aid in dying from their physician. The plaintiffs, consisting of patients and doctors, are asking the court to declare that physicians who provide a prescription for medication to a mentally competent terminally ill patient should not be subject to criminal prosecution under existing California law.

DRLC's New Website is Live!
I am grateful that you are taking the time to visit the DRLC’s newly revamped, revitalized and reinvigorated website.
It has been a labor of love, with a huge dose of commitment and effort by DRLC staff. We have a new platform so we can make changes ourselves, personalize our pages, and update you with our legal news and news of our activities. We are constantly striving to make this website state of the art on accessibility.
We want this to be a living, breathing site that you’ll want to come back to for information, ideas and commentary about disability civil rights, and how disability can and should be integrated seamlessly into our thinking and consciousness.
DRLC is at the forefront of the disability rights movement because we believe that change is possible and we work to ensure that vision of change. It’s not enough to believe but we have to act on our beliefs. On this website you will find new legal rights materials, our blogs, thoughts and activities to promote change, and our celebrations of our victories and those of our friends, colleagues and allies.
And this website, along with our other communication such as our Facebook page, our weekly Good News Report, and our quarterly Cancer Chronicle, will inform you about our work to eliminate discrimination and unconscious bias that harms the dignity and the lives of our clients, and our achievements in the fight to advance the rights of people with disabilities.
We welcome your feedback as we continue to improve the site and expand our reach. Please send your comments to DRLC@lls.edu.
Thank you for visiting our site and for your interest in our work. Come back often.
