You're right we are all dying, but we all haven't fast tracked ourselves in that process by engaging in risky behaviors.
He either caught AIDS and Hep C by sharing needles or through his sexual practices. Had he caught it through a blood transfusion you can bet they'd have mentioned it. Either way neither of those diseases is curable and both are ultimately fatal.
There's an organ shortage as it is in this country, there's no point in putting the few that are available into people with terminable diseases that replacing an organ won't fix.

I basically agree with you, but what I'm saying its case-by-case.
Big drinkers ruin their livers - they are fasttracked to death because of their behavior. Yet, they get organs just like anyone else would/
It's case by case. I'm with you though - the whole organ industry royally sucks, but what can we do? Until we can develop machines that can be used for organs, or be able to clone organ parts, it's a sucky system out there.
