The Terri Schiavo case has been the topics of rants in my family. We all agree in the right to die. In fact it's one of the few things we all agree on, so if we ever have to deal with such a horrible decision, we are all ont he same page: Pull the plug and remove the tubes.
Regardless of your stance on the Terri Schiavo case in Florida, I would like to encourage everyone (if you haven't already) to download and fill out the forms to make their wishes clear in the case of an incapacitating medical condition. The forms are free and fairly simple. You do not need a lawyer to help you prepare the forms and most simply need to be signed in the presence of two witnesses.
For cyburbanite in my fair state of the union, Wisconsin Living Will and Power of Attorney Forms:
If you need these forms for someone outside the state of Wisconsin, searching online for "Living Will" and/or "Health Care Power of Attorney" with the name of the state needed will get you links to similar forms.
Please don't put your family through the hell that Terri's family has been through over the last 15 years.
