    Sorry about your father T&C, my father-in-law died a most horrible death, lived all tubed up for months and allot of pain. When my time comes, I hope this state will adopt the ways and means of Oregon, to live in total pain with no means to stop it is not living, Ms. Hartly did the right thing, now it`s up to the state of Kalifornia to follow and do the right thing, though they won`t. Let`s see, where`s my `38?

    As if she hasn't got enough sadness in her heart, leave her alone! I would be happy to do any jail time she might get. My father had a dozen cance rtumors in 1983 in a California VA hospital, and it took him a year of suffering before he died! No one should have to suffer.

    We can put Gay Marriage on the ballot but not Assisted Suicide? For such a liberal progressive state I'm appalled that CA has not followed the lead of Oregon.I've told my family, best friends, and put in my will/trust to pull my plug.

    It gives me hope to see the DA do the right thing; let's hope the judge does as well.

    Too bad she and her brother were unable to come here to Oregon. We do allow assisted suicide.Don't you think this lady has suffered enough? Let her rest in peace.

    We can humanely put our animals out of their suffering, but not the human loved ones. Prosecuting this is a waste of taxpayer’s dollars. I hope the judge does the right thing and let’s her serve no time. I can’t believe she would get a harsher sentence then someone who commits rape, a drug dealer or someone who commits assault. What is wrong with our system?

    Why don't they just leave this poor woman alone. Isn't there enough mean things for the District Attorney to do? Can't you spend more time on these punks and school troublemakers? Wouldn't that make more of a difference?
