I didn't believe it at first...

But here it is--the statute that some other bloggers have termed the "Texas Futile Care Act as it turns out, it seems to actually be called the "Advance Directives Act."

And it does seem to suggest (see sec. 166.046) in what can be appropriately termed outrageous hypocracy, that a physician (backed by an ethics board) can pull the plug despite a directive.

This whole Schiavo thing feels so Orwellian. Up is down, poor is rich. Good story trumps good policy.
