End-of-Life Logjam

End-of-Life Logjam - New York Times: "Editorial: End-of-Life Logjam

Among the more pressing tasks facing Gov. Eliot Spitzer in his first legislative session involves breaking an absurd 15-year-old stalemate over a humane and practical measure that by now should be uncontroversial, even in Albany.

The measure, the Family Health Care Decisions Act, would allow family members to act as decision makers for patients unable to direct their own care, bringing New York law into line with that in most other states and the District of Columbia.

I have some concerns and hope to be able to comment in more detail later...
