- If you were in a persistent vegetative state, would you want to live 15, 20, 30 more years?
- If your spouse told you unequivocally that they would not want to be kept alive under such circumstances, how would you feel about spending 10 years in court to carry out their wishes?
- Do you really want the state to have that much control over your family's medical decisions?
- Did you know that when he was governor of Texas, George W. Bush signed a law that expressly gave hospitals the right to remove life support if the patient could not pay and there was no hope of revival, regardless of the patient's family's wishes?
