In deat states like Florida and aregon and Washingtn, people shuld execute advance directives stating that they want all possible means used to prolong their lives if that is their desire. I personally do not want to be parched to death.
Having advance directives that specify the proper level of care can be easily bypassed by doctors dedicated to advancing the cause of death,. All they have to do is convene an “ethics” committee to vote to stop treatment and give you 72 hours to find another hospital to treat the patient if you disagree. I have seen it happen, and it will become routine.
