    a person can state in their will that they are not to be kept alive by machines. Most of the cost comes by machines keeping people alive, but I do know a friend of mine that had valley fever at 59 years old and was on a machine that oxygenated her blood to keep her alive and she is totally well today. Her husbands health insurance paid the bill. If she stated in her will that she did not want to be kept alive by a machine she would be dead. Something to think about.

    An ulterior motive for what? Posing a question? The question stands on its own. Stop with the phony high-horse act, it's unbecoming of someone with your intellect.
