In fairness:

"would choose to forgo this kind of treatment if they were dying of a terminal illness"

I think that's kind of different from a blanket DNR.

I stand with my black brothers on this one.

>blanket DNR

While I'm in the 'f### it! Pull the plug.' group, Louise is was like you and would not sign a blanket DNR 20 years ago, when our hospitals first started asking for them.  They have progressed quite a bit to the present state, which is far more detailed while also being easier to complete (a form with checkboxes).  It's really quite good at tailoring your instructions for a broad range of possibilities.  This was no small feat --I'm sure it took platoons of lawyers decades of billable hours.  At any rate, most of our states have the templates online and even Louise was comfortable with filing it.
