Meetup: Americans United for Separation of Church & State - OC


Please join us for a discussion of this important topic. The presentation will describe the process of how to utilize the law to obtain Medical Aid in Dying in California and will include the story of Rich Gillock (former AU OC member) who used the medication in March 2020. The purpose of the law is to allow those with a terminal illness the choice to have a peaceful death at home with loved ones, to have their pain and discomfort managed, and to have their spiritual needs and values respected.  

This discussion will also provide information on attempts by religious groups to derail the legislation as well as how religious groups attempt to prevent individuals from utilizing the law.  

Susan earned her BA, Masters, and Ed.D degrees from UCLA, and serves as a Compassion and Choices Orange County Co-Action Team Leader with Steph. Their outreach efforts include conducting community presentations on the California End of Life Option Act. Susan and Steph are both committed to helping to establish the normalization of medical aid in dying as an acceptable option for terminally ill patients in California. Steph Campbell is also president of the Orange County Chapter of Americans United for Separation of Church and State.
