Have you heard of "The Will to Live?" 

The WILL TO LIVE is a legal document that you can sign which:

-Is a legally binding pro-life alternative to the traditional Living Wills

-Names someone to make health care decisions for you (your "heath care agent') if you develop a condition that makes it impossible for you to speak for yourself (become "incompetent"), and

-Makes clear (in the form of written instructions to your health care agent) what medical treatment you would want if you can no longer speak for yourself

You may visit the National Right to Life website for more information about The Will to Live at
