I know - what I am saying it's case by case. It's entirely possible someone who damaged their organ (yet turned over a new leaf) could be given a new organ.

Very true. There are cases like that.
I just shudder to think of this guy getting a liver that could have gone into some kid instead and the kid dying waiting for another one while the diseases that this guy has contracted continue to ravage his body and the new organ.
In a case like this that guy should be last on the list, if everyone else that could be offered the organ refuses it then he gets his shot.
