Over time we have covered the expansion of the "Living Will" industry in the hiatus following the death of Terri. Many have sought to sell it as a cure-all for any facing a similar fate, but we learned it is not that simple and can be a risky business. Alternatives to that permission slip can be found and we post sources from time to time like sources of Advance Directives from Terri Schindler Schiavo Foundation...

The signs of confusion are pervasive and troubling. My legal clients ask, “Should I carry my Living Will with me, in case I’m in an accident while traveling?” A major newspaper story laments that “too often” Living Wills aren’t available “when decisions about life support must be made.” Retirement community residents are directed to keep Living Wills taped to their refrigerators, for quick and easy access.

The aides and officials indicated that McCain “got the message” from pro-life advocates that picking an abortion advocate like Ridge was non-negotiable and could cost him votes.....

REMINDER: One of the biggest FR threads began in August of 2003 for Terri Schiavo when Judge Greer told Jeb Bush (Pontius Pilate) to take a hike so he could keep killing her on Mikey’s timetable. It’s on my links page if you’re interested. I think one of us should re=post that link. It was HUGH. Seriesly.
