Executive Director Euthanasia Prevention Coalition
I received a phone call this morning from a woman who is the legal power of attorney for personal care for her Aunt, who is living with medical conditions.
The woman called seeking advice after a doctor placed a DNR order on her Aunt, without consulting her, and the hospital is refusing to provide oxygen assistance. The niece, who is Power of Attorney, stated that a doctor claims that her Aunt, who is currently incompetent, agreed to have treatment withdrawn, even though her Aunt clearly stated in the past that she wanted treatment.
Whether or not a DNR order is applicable in this circumstance, this story exposes the importance of having a Power of Attorney document that will protect you.

The Life Protecting Power of Attorney ensures that your power of attorney will have the power to uphold values, it protects you from euthanasia and assisted suicide and it defines the treatment decisions that you would want and how those decisions are to be made.
The Life Protecting Power of Attorney also gives you the piece of mind that the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition will help you if your expressed wishes are ignored or if a hospital or doctor decides to impose decisions upon you.
EPC also works with Compassionate Community Care (CCC) to offer practical advice and support when you or a loved one is faced with difficult medical care decisions, or if you are concerned that a friend or a loved one is being denied basic care or has died by euthanasia.
