I’ve seen too many transplant-related types in healthcare behave in ways that were unprofessional at best.

That's why I've said no when asked and advised others to say no to the driver's license note. I want the decision made by my family --- yes, even in their time of grief.

I would rather my family respect my decision. I really don't give a rat's ass what happens to my body when I'm dead... I'm not using it any more.

However, I will agree that if there is a profit to be made, I'd like my family to partake in that.

I actually agree that in the absence of a clear directive these critical decisions should be made by the family. Of course, many of the 'Terri-bots' disagree. They think most families can't be trusted to not just kill grandma if someone isn't watching.

We are all the beneficiaries of scientific study. I don't get the outrage over the taking of tissues... I can understand the money aspect, but on the other hand, public agencies finding revenue that didn't come from taxpayers isn't a wholly bad thing either.
