Every individual should have their end of life choices known by at least one family member or a next of kin. Assigning someone that has access to your written directives is import,
this makes it a lot easier on the family at the death. Reading the article made me realize why it is important for us to have written directives in how we wish to be taken care of at the time nearing death, during death and after death.
I believe that it is the right of every American to have their end of life choices written and recognized. At the time of death this helps avoid any sort of misunderstanding, or even possible relief from the financial burden burial. Knowing and respecting ones choices is the last thing we can do for the deceased before moving on with our lives.
And finally the cost of end of life choices. The longer we decide to prolong death the more it cost, trying to find cures is cheap either, there’s always something new on the market that the physicians are willing to offer. You can always chose the route of fast and natural meanimy no medications provided to priling the death process, or you can chose to keep trying medical trials in hope that one of them will miraculously cure the dying person. in most cases it’s the family members that are always pushing for more medical trials and tests , not taking into considrtationg the discomfort and pain the patient is going through just to satisfy our own selfish agenda of keeping a loved one around longer.
We should respect the wishes of our loved ones at the time of death, and to alwsys consider their well being, putting their best interest ahead of our selfish wants .
