National Right to Life has something called the WILL TO LIVE,
which does exactly what you suggest.

Not that I think the ABA is anything great, but their Consumers Tool Kit for Health Care Advance Planning
focuses on helping a person make his wishes clear in his own mind as well as on paper. It lists the range from all care to no measures.
Regardless of what choices a person makes for end-of-life care, it is important to take the time to consider that this issue is far more complex than many people realize. Also, people should look into appointment of a Health Care Proxy, not just have a Living Will, to help ensure they receive the care they desire.
And communicating clearly to the Proxy is important, too. Not all decisions are "live or die"...for example, "do you want risk taken to improve your condition, even if it means a slight increase in the chance of death?"
