- Family sues UCSF following death of cancer patient
By Michael Bodley - Wednesday Jul 19, 2017
In one of the first legal actions involving California’s “right to die” law, the family of a deceased cancer patient is suing UCSF Medical Center, alleging the system did not appropriately aid the woman in ending her life. The San Francisco Superior Court suit, filed by attorneys for the family of Judy Dale on July 7, claims that Dale’s caretakers at the hospital told her they would assist her in obtaining medication to help her die — but then suddenly backtracked. California’s End of Life Option Act went into effect in June 2016, a landmark and controversial piece of legislation that allows terminally ill adults to obtain medication to end their life if certain conditions are met. The hospital said it was one of the first in the state to develop a protocol for complying with the state law, adding that it “respects” the right of its physicians to opt out at their discretion. The lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages, also names the University of California Board of Regents, among other UCSF-connected entities.
- Bald eagle threat: Lead ammo left behind by hunters
By MARY ESCH, Associated Press - Sunday Jul 16, 2017
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Bald eagles have made a remarkable recovery across the United States since the pesticide DDT was banned 45 years ago, but the majestic birds are still dying from another environmental poison: lead from bullets and shotgun pellets in wildlife carcasses left behind by hunters.In New York, which has been a leader in the bald eagle restoration in the Northeast for four decades, state wildlife researchers have documented a growing number of eagle deaths from lead poisoning in recent years.In New York, lead poisoning was confirmed as the cause of death in 38 of 336 bald eagles brought to a Department of Environmental Conservation lab near Albany between 2000 and 2015, said state wildlife biologist Kevin Hynes, who does the necropsies."Eagles are doing very well, their recovery is a great success story largely supported by excise taxes paid by hunters" on lead ammunition and guns, said Lawrence Keane, senior vice president of the National Shooting Sports Association.Virginia wildlife advocate Clark said that rather than a ban on lead ammunition, his group is seeking a public education campaign so hunters are aware of the problem and how they can help.
