It's positively amazing how many times I see the word "I" when I'm reading this thread...Shows how much of a self-centered society we live
Fact is, none of us are her, and none of us were married to him, and none of us (including the judge) has ever seen her in person.
Sure, I would not want my body to go on living after the brain is gone, that's why I am building a living will at this time.
She didn't have a living will. Period. Legally, the judge has acsertained that heresay( watching a movie on TV at age 25, and commenting on it), is
tantamount to a starvation request. Nothing anyone can do will change that decision, even though I disagree about it. The Courts have final say...THEY
have all the power.
On an aside, yesterday, I told my wife to talk to her brother. He and his wife are seperated, but have not begun divorce preceedings.
Legally, if anything should happen to him, SHE has power of attortney over him and all of his estate, not my in-laws. She could, technically, starve
my borther-in-law to death out of spite, if she could back it up legally.
Long and short of it...The legal system of the western world is so out of whack that things may be legal, even if they make absolutely no sense.
that's something every good conspiracist knows....
