Gary Coleman "Don't Pull The Plug On Me"

Gary Coleman made a "Choice to Prolong Life," and his ex-wife, Shannon Price, made a choice to end it.

As you probably know, Shannon Price took her unresponsive ex-husband Gary Coleman off of life support on May 28, with his cause of death officially listed as simply "Fall."

However, in 2006, Coleman specifically directed in legal documents that he didn't want anyone to pull the plug on him if he was ever in that situation.

Those documents, ironically, were filed by Shannon Price herself, as she makes an effort to be granted control over the disposition of Gary's remains.

Among the documents filed in court by Price, who Coleman divorced in 2008, is a health care power of attorney letter which Gary filled out in 2006.

Under the heading "Instructions for Health Care," Coleman checked a box titled "Choice to Prolong Life" which states that "I want my life to be prolonged as long as possible within the limits of generally accepted health care standards."

The other option - "Choice Not to Prolong Life" - was not checked off.

  2. When a person's life is in irreversible danger because of accident or failure to stabilize the vital signs after a major operation, our initial reaction is to save him or her. However, unlike most people who choose to live there are those who do not want to extend their life. That is when a "living will" takes part in our decision making. I recently read that the requirements for a living will varies in every country or even from state to state. For example: If I were to undergo a major medical operation and I chose not to be resuscitated - I need to consult with a law firm in Ottawa about my decision. Certainly, there are licensed estate lawyers in Ottawa who can help a client legalize his/her personal health care options. In Cole's case, however, I believe that the change of status (from married to divorce) should have been noted on the will to avoid confusion and make a wrong call in life and death situations.
