Default Organ Donation...This article makes you think!

This might scare one a bit about organ donation. I've never heard anything of the like!

That is bizarre. Makes you wonder about the medical care? Monitors? etc...

Actually, given what the quality of my life would be if I woke up after something like that, harvest away.

Don't they do EEGs over there? If I had one that showed brain death, I wouldn't want to come back. My mind is the most precious possession I have at this point, and if that's gone, I'm outta here. If somebody brought me back after discovering that my brain is gone, I'd come back and haunt them after I do die.

Sad but true...the average lay person won't realize that we use various monitors here to preclude that.

And amen, Sue...if my brain goes bye-bye, please don't try a Frankenstein on the rest of me!:eek:

"Whose brain did I just put in that 7 foot creature?"

"Abby-something."

"Ab-normal?"

"Yes..that's it..":D

(Roughly paraphrased from "Young Frankenstein".)

I have been against organ donation since college - I read an article that compared organ donation to cannibalism..... it's really not that far off when you start thinking about it - the more I see, the less I think organs should be shared between people.

I'd be interested in your thought process behind that. Do you think it is immoral? If so, why?:confused:
