This is clearly unethical, regarding the doctor's authority to designate DNR without prior permission from the patient detailing precise circumstances, and/or permission from next-of-kin or medical proxy.
The problem is, if a law is passed, then the law must be followed, and the question would be, will the Texas legislature (sic) actually read this bill before passing it? Or will it be like "ObamaCare", where it's part of a giant omnibus bill that "we have to pass it to see what's in it"?
I'm counting on Texas to continue as a beacon for freedom, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, although it certainly wouldn't hurt to just call your Congressperson and remind him/her of that!

This is just the natural progression of socialized health care, why are you surprised?
