NY1 reports that Assemblyman Michael Colton wants to pass a "Terri's Law" in NY State that would "make it illegal in New York to remove a feeding tube without the patient’s written consent." What's more, a "living will or healthcare proxy would not be enough" - extra written directions would need to be given. Gothamist is so confused by this. So, forget your religious/health-ethics issues: Let's say you were suddenly in a vegetative state, being kept alive by a feeding tube, and you did have a living will where you clearly state you don't want to be on a feeding tube... you would still need to somehow tell your doctor you didn't want to be on a feeding tube? That seems totally unpossible.
