I don't know how many of you believe in the living will, but here is the one I recently implemented and had copies sent to relatives and the original put in my safe. Big Bad Wolf can advise on its legality.
I suggest to copy from here and paste to a word doc if you decide to use it. jh


Living Will

I, _________________________ (fill in the blank), being of sound mind and body, do not wish to be kept alive indefinitely by artificial means.

Under no circumstances should my fate be put in the hands of peckerwood politicians who couldn't pass ninth-grade biology if their lives depended on it.

If a reasonable amount of time passes and I fail to sit up and ask for a cold beer, it should be presumed that I won't do so ever again. When such a determination is reached, I hereby instruct my spouse, children and attending physicians to pull the plug, reel in the tubes and call it a day.

Under no circumstances shall the members of the Legislature enact a special law to keep me on life-support machinery. It is my wish that these boneheads mind their own damn business, and pay attention instead to the health, education and future of the millions of Americans who aren't in a permanent coma and who nonetheless may be in need of nourishment.

Under no circumstances shall any politicians butt into this case. I don't care how many fundamentalist votes they're trying to scrounge for their run for the presidency in 2008, it is my wish that they play politics with someone else's life and leave me alone to die in peace.

I couldn't care less if a hundred religious zealots send e-mails to legislators in which they pretend to care about me. I don't know these people, and I certainly haven't authorized them to preach and/or crusade on my behalf. They should mind their own damn business, too.

If any of my family goes against my wishes and turns my case into a political cause, I hereby promise to come back from the grave and make his or her existence a living hell.

That looks like a legal, logically constructed document. I plan to copy it, sign it and have it notorized immediatedly!:D:D

I copied and pasted it to Word and made just a few changes, and will even have this notarized in the next day or two.

:DJimbo I think you are on to something here! I may copy and use it
too if you don't mind. It looks like it would be legal and binding
to me. Thanks for dreaming this up. This is great!
