Kathleen Parker, do you even know what a living will is? No one is putting Grandma in front of a bureaucrat who will decide if she lives or dies.
A living will simply lets your loved ones know what your wishes are regarding your care for a time when you are no longer able to tell them yourself.
Do you want to be kept alive by a respirator? What if your mind is completely intact? Would you want to be kept alive on a respirator then?
How much pain medication do you want?
Do you want CPR even if that means most of your ribs will be broken in the process, as is often the case with elderly people?
Who do you want to make decisions about blood transfusions or other major health decisions?
All a living will does is relieve your loved ones of the burden of guessing what you would have wanted.
