Not true. Most people still do not want to sign away their lives, and even fewer people wanted to in 1976. The idea of "living wills" was new, and not very popular. The default position of the medical community was to provide care. Most people agreed with that, and saw no need to put their wishes in writing. At that time, their desire to be cared for would be honored without question.
Most people shared the belief that The fact that the victim is on the threshold of death or in terminal condition is no defense to a homicide charge. Even if they mistakenly believed Quinlan was dying, they didn't think that justified killing her.
The euthanasia lobby has pushed for "living wills" for decades. People now generally accept that there is a right to sign a living will, but most people still don't sign them. The euthanasia lobby pressures people to sign them, and still we resist.
This seminar looks dubious. I think this has more to do with promoting the choice to die than any objective promotion of the actual desires of the attendees.
I think it would be nice if one or more pro-lifers attended this seminar, to provide a pro-life perspective, and to report what they see there. It would be nice to bring several copies of the Will to Live, to hand out to the people in attendance. And then take video of the hosts' heads exploding.
Could somebody ping the list?
With that decree, what's left to talk about?
Yes, why do I have the feeling the message will be
“Decide now not be a “burden” on your family and society. You wouldn’t want to be a BURDEN on your LOVED ONES, would you?”
Trying to get us use to it I see.

That's a lie about Terri Schiavo's condition and about the "mechanical life support." The woman was awake and aware. She was tortured to death by starvation and dehydration.
Sharon Sullivan, you're a liar and propagandist for the Death Cult.
This is simply disgusting.
Sad to say, I believe this evil obsession with death had it’s genesis in Colorful Colorado. Duty to Die, Dick Lamm brought abortion to America and went on to push for euthanasia with his Governor’s Commission on Life and the Law. Pray for him to repent, before it’s too late!
