right to die

all this activity around one woman in florida has made it painfully obvious that everyone needs to have a living will and/or advance directives. admittedly, we have not updated ours since moving to vermont (each state has its own form), but i do have one from ca and i think brian and my family all know that i would not want to be kept alive in a similar situation.

all this involvement by the goverment in this issue just makes me want to puke. a post on moby's website states it very well:
"my note to the far-right would be: you can't have it both ways. if you genuinely believe in the sanctity of life then you cannot support the death penalty and you cannot allow people to buy automatic assault weapons and you cannot support wars that result in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent people.
and if you genuinely believe in states rights then you can't pass intrusive federal legislation when the states do things that you arbitrarily disagree with."
