    After witnessing the fiasco over Terry Schiavo, God Bless her soul, does anyone know of a good program for making a Living Will?

    What you want is a signed Advanced Directive. This will need to follow you thorugh a situation or whatever.
    you will have to state that you do not want heroic measures taken , in case of catasrophic injury, or such
    as well as subsistence machinery.
    I don't know if there is software for this,but a hospital can advise you of your rights.

    I had my lawyer draw up my Living Will and Health Care Proxy but there are a number of programs out there for wills. You may wish to check out Quicken WillMaker Plus. You can look at some info on it here: http://www.writeexpress.com/n/living-will.html.

    Thanks! I'll take a look at Willmaker Plus. There must be others out there, but the reviews look pretty good. I just want something simple that will not require me having to hire a lawyer.

    You're better off spending the money and going to a lawyer to get your living will done cuz then you'll be assured that it'll be done right and it'll count when the time comes.
