Albany- Dr. Daniel Simmons of Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Albany says we're in a time of constantly changing technology and the Bible doesn't give insight on life support versus no life support.

He advises his congregation to have living wills but he says the decision on whether you live or die comes from one source.

"What I would say to people is that God is the giver and the taker of life and while we have all this science to help, ultimately regardless of the science, when God says that's it, that's it," says Dr. Simmons.

He also says that an equally yolked husband and wife can prevent situations similar to the Schiavo case.
