The Benefits Of A Living Will

A Living Will gives you control over the quality of your life by guaranteeing that your wishes regarding your own health care are carried out. Specifically, the law lets you choose whether to have life-sustaining medical or surgical means or procedures provided, withheld or withdrawn in the following circumstances:

-If the life-sustaining treatment is experimental and not a proven therapy, or is likely to be ineffective or futile in prolonging life, or is likely to merely prolong an imminent dying process;

-If you are permanently unconscious;

-If you are in a terminal condition;

-If you have a serious irreversible illness or condition and the likely risks and burdens associated with medical intervention to be withheld or withdrawn outweigh the likely benefits of such intervention.
