Part 2:Individual Instructions
Part 3:Organ Donation
Part 4:Designate a primary physician
Part 5:Signature and witness provisions “What is clear about a good death is that one size won’t fit all; we want to be as different in dying as in living”(Smith). "I'm worried that legalizing assisted suicide would make it too easy for people - including doctors - to give up the fight for health and take a fast exit out of life" (John Coppard). "I believe a life is a life, no matter what state or condition a person is in. The people around them, whether that be family, friends, careers or medical stuff, should remain positive and always remind the ill person that no matter what they may think, there is always something to live for." - (The son of Gary Parkinson) "I value sitting with patients or holding their hands. It reminds me that life is a great mystery and we all share the characteristics of being human. We take part in all of life, including dying, but we are not masters of it" Peter Ravenscroft). “My 93 year old friend Jean is an example After deciding not to undergo further treatment for her recurring cancer, she could have died with dignity if only someone could have assisted her death rather than let her wait month after month, for her body to deteriorate enough for her to die” (Fridstein).
