A Christian group of doctors is set to receive $300,000 from the state of California after it attempted to mandate that doctors provide assisted suicide services, according to a Wednesday press release from Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF).
A lawsuit was filed against state Attorney General Rob Bonta in February 2022 by the Christian Medical & Dental Associations (CMDA), after California passed SB 380, which removed protections for religious medical professionals who refuse to participate in assisted suicide. A federal judge ruled that the law likely violated the First Amendment rights of the physicians and the state recently agreed to pay $300,000 to CMDA in attorney’s fees, according to a press release.

“Our clients seek to live out their faith in their medical practice, and that includes valuing every human life entrusted to their care,” ADF Senior Counsel Kevin Theriot said in the press release. “Participating in physician-assisted suicide very clearly would violate their consciences. We’re pleased the court followed the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in NIFLA v. Becerra that clarified First Amendment protections extend to religious medical professionals.”
