I,______ , being of sound mind and body, do not wish tobe kept alive indefinitely by artificial means. Under no circumstances should my fate be put in the hands of pinhead politicians who couldn’t pass ninth-grade biology if theirlives depended on it, or lawyers / doctors interested insimply running up the bills. If a reasonable amount of time passes and I fail to ask for at least one of the following:
Glass of wine
Chicken fried steak
cup of tea
It should be presumed that I won’t ever get better. Whensuch a determination is reached, I hereby instruct myappointed person and attending physicians to pull the plug,reel in the tubes, let the ‘fat lady sing,’ and call it a day!
