#Fight-the-Grim Reaper: Repeal the Texas Advance Directives Act

Adolf Eichmann: he'd love the Texas Advance Directives Act!
Chris Dunn's family had to fight it.  How many others will be checked out early because of it? Houston Methodist Hospital hired outside lawyers in addition to their own in order to try to seize guardianship of Chris from his mother. How much of that had to do with the fact he was an organ donor? There's lots of money for hospitals in those human organ farms!

Chris Dunn is every Texan. 

As long as the Advanced Directive Act is on the books, not a single vulnerable patient in Texas is safe. Here's how Texas Right to Life puts it:

Not one Texan is immune to provision of the Texas Advance Directives Act (TADA-Chapter 166.046 of the Health & Safety Code) which allows nameless, faceless hospital committees to withdraw life-sustaining care despite objection from the patient and his family, and regardless of any written legal document outlining the patient’s wishes. They can do this based on a discriminatory “quality-of-life” judgment that a patient’s life and continued care are “futile.”
Do you want faceless strangers making decisions on the treatment of your loved ones -- bureaucrats like the little Nazi clerk, Adolf Eichmann, deciding that your family member is a useless eater better off dead? That's where were moving, folks. Texas is just the tip of the iceberg.
