Living wills for people who will to live

BioEdge recently reported that nervous Nellies in the Netherlands were carrying “please DO resuscitate me” cards instead of “do not resuscitate” cards. Apparently they are worried about the possibility of involuntary euthanasia. This week we stumbled across a Dutch organisation which provides this documents. Readers in the Netherlands may be interested. NPV is an Evangelical group with more than 73,000 members which makes available “living wills” (Levenswensverklaring) which specify that the patient wants treatment to be continued if he is no longer able to express his wishes.
