“When people fail to take care of these matters, “you are pretty much leaving the decisions up to people who may not know what you want,” said Craig Klugman, a professor in the Health Sciences at DePaul University, who teaches courses in bioethics, medical humanities and death and dying. In the absence of a medical power of attorney you “could be opening your family up to fights over who makes decisions,” he said. “I’ve seen in the hospital families torn apart because people have different ideas about what the parent would have wanted or the aunt would have wanted.””

“Such a system may also end up continuing science’s legacy of Western paternalism. “Requiring a rule of assurance and submitting copies of the consent documents might be culturally elitist—it places the Western standard of autonomy above all other ways of thinking of people—placing the individual over the group,” says Craig Klugman, a professor of bioethics at DePaul University. Not every community privileges individual consent in the way Westerners do. Klugman points out that some people may seek permission from a parent, spouse, or village elder.”
