Most States Don't Make Doctors Enforce Advance Directives

Living Wills? Advanced Directives? UM NOPE!

According to the National Right to Life Committee, the laws of all but ten states may allow physicians and hospitals to disregard advance directives when they call for patients to be provided with treatment food or fluids.

If DRS. consider YOUR quality of life too low, they won't treat you. NO FOOD OR WATER FOR YOU!~(said in Nazi Voice)~

Americans Feel Differently.

A national poll conducted by Polling Company conducted in April found 76% of those told ""A seriously ill patient has indicated they want food and fluids but the doctor thinks the patient's quality of life too low" say the patient should be able to receive food and water.

Only 14 percent of Americans say the physician should be allowed to withhold them.

The poll found similar views concerning a patient who wants "life support" when the doctor says the quality of life is too low. Some 77 percent say "life support" should not be removed from patients who say they want it and just 14 percent believe the advance directive should be ignored.

Whats a person to do? For me, I am making sure my Daughters agree, Legally if neccessary, that If I fall victim to this scenario, THEY ARE TO KEEP ME ALIVE NO MATTER WHAT! I will also file a copy of this with my church's Pastor.

As a wrote previously, That giant sucking sound is momma taking what she can outta life, and the system! I aint Going until JESUS comes and takes me himself, They will know!
