No Frill Living WillPosted to the Space Coast Freethought Association list but original author unknown:

I, _________________________ (fill in the blank), being of sound mind and body, do not wish to be kept alive indefinitely by artificial means.

Under no circumstances should my fate be put in the hands of peckerhead politicians who could not pass ninth-grade biology if their lives depended on it.

If a reasonable amount of time passes and I fail to sit up and ask for a brandy, it should be presumed that I will not do so ever again. When such a determination is reached, I hereby instruct my spouse, children and attending physicians to pull the plug, reel in the tubes and call it a day.

Under no circumstances shall the members of the Legislature enact a special law to keep me on life-support machinery. It is my wish that these assholes mind their own damned business, and pay attention instead to the health, education and future of the millions of Americans who are not in a permanent coma and who nonetheless may be in need of nourishment.

Under no circumstances shall any politicians butt into this case. I do not care how many fundamentalist votes they are trying to scrounge for their run for the presidency in 2008, it is my wish that they play politics with someone else's life and leave me alone to die in peace.

I could not care less if a hundred religious zealots send e-mails to legislators in which they pretend to care about me. I do not know these people, and I certainly have not authorized them to preach or to crusade on my behalf. They should mind their own damned business, too.

If any of my family goes against my wishes and turns my case into a political cause, I hereby promise to come back from the grave and make his or her existence a living hell.
