This is you and your doctor discussing and deciding what you want to happen in the event you can't speak for yourself later on. I don't see anything in there suggesting that you make a particular decision one way or another (& further note that financially, your doctor would probably be better off steering you toward taking and using every medical treatment and device possible, rather than "aborting oneself," so there's a good argument to be made that this provision will increase life, rather than cause more death--assuming doctors really do put their financial well-being ahead of their patient's wishes and medical well-being, I mean).:
