U.S. Legal Forms, Inc. Highlights Living Will Information and Forms in Wake of GOP Primary Candidates’ Discussion of Terri Schiavo in Florida

Share Article

At NBC News debate, GOP candidates state views on liberty and end-of-life choices. U.S. Legal Forms initiates media campaign publicizing state-specific information on living wills and health care directives.

In the aftermath of the latest Florida GOP Primary debate, U.S. Legal Forms has initiated a media campaign highlighting its selection of state-specific Living Wills and Advance Health Care Directives. Republican candidates for President discussed the case of Terri Schiavo[1], the Florida woman who spent years in a vegetative state while relatives fought in court over whether life support should be removed. [1] In re: The Guardianship of Theresa Marie Schiavo; Case No. 90-2908-GD-003. Florida Sixth Judicial Circuit, 2005-02-25. http://abstractappeal.com/schiavo/trialctorder02-05.pdf

Intense media scrutiny accompanied the last stages of the legal battle, which riveted the nation in early 2005. Schiavo passed away in February of that year, her husband finally having won the court battle in which he had insisted she would not have wanted to maintain life support without hope of recovery.

At that time, U.S. Legal Forms published extensive information regarding living wills and health care directives on its website. An detailed overview and FAQ on the topic can be found at the site’s home for living wills (http://www.uslegalforms.com/livingwills/). Due to the publicity generated by the Republican debate, U.S. Legal Forms has initiated a media campaign to publicize its living will related content.

U.S. Legal Forms CEO, attorney Frank Edens, said:

"The Republican debate’s revisiting of the Schiavo case will cause an uptick in interest in Living Wills. Our site is a great resource for people to learn more about an issue they probably haven’t thought much about, but should. No one wants their loved ones suffering through court battles in such a situation, but sometimes people discover that their personal wishes were not recorded in the required format necessary to hold up in court. People need to go the extra mile to make sure they are getting a valid form. If you have questions about Living Wills for your particular situation, you should consider consulting an attorney to draft or review your form."
