End of life decisions

Modern medical ethics are trending away from Torah values. The Torah’s view is that every moment of life is of infinite value, whereas the view of many in the medical world is to judge the value of life by its “quality.”

This has many ramifications, including the need for a Halachic Living Will and careful preparation for and consideration of one’s medical decisions.
