Your Death Your Choice, Update

Since this original post was made on August 25th, the Obama White House has added this introduction to the booklet listing, ‘Your Life, Your Choice’ on the Veteran’s Administration website:

Your Life, Your Choices was officially retired from use in
VA in 2007, and an expert panel was convened to review
and comment on an online module version of this document
that was under development at that time.

The ‘Your Life, Your Choices’ online module is currently
being revised based on suggestions from the expert panel
members and from chaplains representing eight different
faith groups. The revised online module is scheduled to be
released on the My HealtheVet Web site in the spring of
2010.

Please note that portions of this document have been
interpreted by some to be negative in tone and
insufficiently balanced. The revision process is addressing
these concerns. Also note that some of the links contained
in the document are no longer active.

First, note that chaplains from eight different faiths have been appointed to the new review board. Secondly, this statement, “Please note that portions of this document have been interpreted by some to be negative in tone and insufficiently balanced.” These two statements from the Obama White House summarize my Post better than I could have done myself.
