A liver transplant recipient was given a public intoxication warning Monday afternoon after he registered a 0.39 percent blood-alcohol level, according to La Crosse police reports. The 34-year-old man was found on a curb at Springbrook Way and Cliffside Drive about 3 p.m., reports stated. He could not stand or walk unassisted when a family member took him home, police noted. He was taken to Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center for detoxification.

They should have only given him half a liver until he proved he could take care of it.

I think I can hazard a guess as to why he needed the liver transplant in the first place.

Another perfect example as to why I won't sign the back of my liscense.

After my mom died the hospital tried to steal her organs by taking advantage of our grief, luckily we said "No F'ing way".

Take advantage of your grief?? Really? I suppose that they could have waited a couple of months for your grief to subside a bit. Of course, by then your mother's organs wouldn't be of much help to anyone, would they? But, hey, you made the right decision, I'm sure. Nobody but recalcitrant alcoholics ever get organ transplants. Keep telling yourself that, anyway.

There you go again, giving me early 90s flashbacks of me being in a drunken haze during college.

My mother lived 8 years because of the generosity of a family who donated their son's liver to her.

My 16 month old granddaughter is alive today because of a kind family who donated their poor child's liver, stomach, pancreas and colon.

American medicine is producing miracles with the help of generous family members who gave "the gift of life" to others.

I’m dreaming that we can grow the organs instead of waiting for organ donations.

There are plenty of worthy recipients. I hope you are lying in a hospital bed one day needing a body part to stay alive and get to listen to some pinhead like you say, “No F’ing way!”.

Since when do my organs belong to the government?

You both are pathetic fools which dangerous minds. Taking organs from people happens in communist China not the USA.

Perhaps you two belong in a communist nation. Feel free to give a kidney to some killer.

Where did anyone imply that your organs belong to the government?

Where did anyone advocate "taking" organs from people?

No, I'll continue to reside in this great, free nation and continue to guard its freedoms with my life if necessary. And, yes, I will donate my organs upon my death, as I will be with my Lord and Savior and won't be needing them. As far as how my organs are allocated, I've been involved in enough transplants to have seen that the vast majority of recipients are average, good people that are greatful and humbled for the gift. You make your choice.

Who said they did? You said because of one example of abuse of a liver you weren’t donating.

Well, gosh, there was a car wreck I saw today, we should ban cars. I heard on the news a gunshot wound, gosh, we should ban guns. On guy abused a donated liver so we should all refuse to donate. What else are you going to use flimsy excuses for? You talk like a liberal.
