The Organization Formerly Known as the Hemlock Society, in conjunction with the Usual Suspects in the legislature, is trying to legalize euthanasia in California via stealth.  Instead of legal injections, let’s allow “terminal sedation”– i.e. sedate the patient into unconsciousness, then dehydrate and starve said patient to death à la Terri Schiavo.
