Living Will

Dave’s done it so I’m going to follow suit:
If I am in a permanent vegetative state, then please don’t try to keep me alive forever. Pull the tube, let me die, and then salvage my organs for transplants. It’s not like I’ll need them anymore, yet it could be a matter of life or death for them.
There, I’ve said it. There’s probably a more official way of doing that but this will do for now.

  1. IANAL either, but I think the important part is just to ensure your family and close friends know.

  2. Very smart blogging your own living will. God forbid it ever has to come into question.

  3. “There’s probably a more official way of doing that but this will do for now.” There is a more official way, and unless you do it that way your wishes will have no legal effect.
