Live and Let Die: The Consequences of Oklahoma’s Nondiscrimination in Treatment Act

New in the Oklahoma Law Review:  “Live and Let Die: The Consequences of Oklahoma’s Nondiscrimination in Treatment Act.”


Kendra Norman rightly attacks the Oklahoma law as “crippling the power and judgment of physicians by giving the family complete and ultimate veto power considering the end of LST.”  I have similarly criticized the law as a “red light.”  


Norman takes this a step further and suggests this law will exacerbate Oklahoma’s already extreme shortage of physicians.
