Sen. Goodall wants to study if DMV should ask about living will

Sen. Eddie Goodall, who represents Mint Hill, Matthews, and some of Union County in the state legislature, wants to study whether the DMV should ask drivers if they have a living will. If the driver does, and wants the information recorded on their license, then Goodall thinks this could help in situations like Terry Schiavo.

According to the News and Observer:

“I’ve talked to a lot of nurses and people in palliative care,” he said. “They say there’s a big need for more education about living wills because families go through misery trying to make these end-of-life decisions.”
