You're right it not directly CH related, but it is important to all of us. The Courts have set a very dangerous precendent in this case (and in others), where a spouse or the Courts are allowed to determine what is considered "quality of life".

Unless you have a living will, specifying your wishes, your spouse or the Courts can decide for you>/i> whether your life is worth living, and can choose whether you live or die. And the judges don't even have to see you, all that is needed is for someone to file a petition with the Court that your life isn't worth living. If you aren't capable of defending yourself, you're history!

And that is scary! Whose life is not worth living? Stroke victims? Mentally Retarded Persons? People with CP, Downs, MD, etc? People in wheelchairs? People who are paralyzed? People over 75? CH sufferers?

Something has to be done, because you or a member of your family could be next. Here's a few email addresses I have collected:;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
