What is a living will?

Question: What is a living will?

Answer: A living will is your direction to your doctors of what you would want the doctors to do in the event that you became terminal, in a permanently unconscious state, or as what happened in the Terri Schiavo case a persistent vegetative state. In that situation you have the choice as to whether or not you would want medical treatment to be withdrawn or you also have the choice as to whether or not you would want food and water to be withdrawn. The doctors then would make the decision based upon their best judgment as to whether or not that it would be appropriate for medical treatment and water and food to be withdrawn in the event that you made the direction to them to do so in the event that you became terminal or permanently unconscious.
