Life Sustaining Statute, Montana

Declaration as Provided by Montana Stats. 50-9-104

DECLARATION

If I should have an incurable or irreversible condition that will cause my death within a reasonable short time, it is my desire that my life not be prolonged by administration of life-sustaining procedures. If my condition is terminal and I am unable to participate in decisions regarding my medical treatment, I direct my attending physician to withhold or withdraw procedures that merely prolong the dying process and are not necessary to my comfort or freedom from pain. It is my intention that this declaration shall be valid until revoked by me.
