Sarah Palin, Advance Care Directive Advocate

While ex-Governor Sarah Palin want you to believe that Advance Care Directives are the work of the Devil and Grandma-murdering Trig-killers, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin was for them. 

Perhaps Mrs. Palin has forgotten, what with the many documents she produced during her many weeks as Governor, but she signed an order and officially proclaimed a “Healthcare Decisions Day”:

… designed to raise public awareness of the need to plan ahead for healthcare decisions, related to end of life care and medical decision-making whenever patients are unable to speak for themselves and to encourage the specific use of advance directives to communicate these important healthcare decisions.

Governor Palin  reminded citizens that “Alaska Statute 13.52 provides the specifics of the advance directives law and offers a model form for patient use.” Indeed, similar laws exist in every state and the District of Columbia, and no one — certainly not Sarah Palin — has called them euthanasia before now.

Cast members of “Survivor” were unavailable for comment.
