Thanks to Florida blog Abstract Appeal for identifying this Corporate Counsel article discussing how in-house hospital attorneys are bracing themselves for new legislation in the aftermath of the Terri Schiavo case that could make it tougher to remove someone from life support. For example, Louisiana and Alabama are considering laws that would prohibit doctors from removing feeding tubes or other means of nutrition and hydration, even with the consent of a guardian. Kansas is considering a change that would compel guardians to seek court permission before withholding food or water. Michigan is weighing a law that would bar anyone having an extramarital affair from making life support decisions for his or her spouse.
