8-1: Final Project II Bioethics IHP 420 In the case of Terri Schiavo a very publicized Right to Die legal case from the late 90’s early 2000s involved her, her husband, parents, and current physicians. As stated in an article by
Trisha Torrey, “There are many arguments about whether people should have the right to die when they choose, intentionally and by design, to end their own perceived pain and suffering” (Torrey, 2021). Terri’s husband claims Terri did not want to be kept living in a vegetative state, but there were no advance directives. A living will or advance directive is a State by State written and signed document stating how a person wants to receive or not receive their possible healthcare. It also must be signed by the person and two acceptable witnesses. If there is no advance directive, a person may in a medical crisis and unable to decide on their own, receive care by healthcare professionals that they may not want.
