Right to Die laws
Information on the law about Right to DieLiving Wills
A living will is a legal instrument that is executed by a person of sound mind and witnessed in much the same manner as a will. A living will expresses the individual's desires regarding life support should he or she become incapacitated as a result of a terminal illness: specifically, whether or not to administer artificial life-sustaining procedures in the event of an incurable or irreversible terminal condition that would otherwise result in death in a short time.
