The profit margin on organ donations is huge.

I have stated to all my loved ones that I will NOT be a donor. I know people who used to be involved in the process, and they confirm what the article says.

And if I need an organ that requires the death of the donor, I will not consent to it.

It's my understanding that organs are removed while the “donor” is still alive, and can survive briefly without them (excluding heart and brain). The “donor”is given a (hopefully) anesthetic dose of morphine before the op.

After seeing the original movie”COMA”I was scared to death and worried if that could possibly happen.

After seeing this article,I guess my worries were confirmed if only because there are unethical people in every field so why not in medicine?

Money trumps everything in a materialist nihilistic society. Respect for human life means nothing any more.

I have had opportunity to be around those that hound families for consent to harvest organs both personally and professionally. They are relentless. I told one fellow that if he didn't get out of my Dad's room and leave us alone immediately they would be harvesting his organs.

They put off that they are caring and your loved one will help someone else. Then as soon as the paper is signed it is hurry hurry hurry, you can say goodbye at the funeral home. Many people have related this to me.

As a professional I have had to put together the jigsaw puzzle that the “recovery team” sends the funeral home. Very little or no respect was paid to the deceased. I have known people that have worked for the recovery team and although the word “quota” can not be found anywhere they are implied. There also have been allegations of kick backs to attending physicians.

I will never ever carry an organ donor card. My family has been told to keep these vultures away from me if the ocassion ever arises. They make my skin, which they also want, crawl.

Carved up like a turkey wile they are still alive and can feel pain. Wow. Isn’t 21st century civilization wonderful?

And, of course, for some in here this article is nothing but a source of political jokes.

The dirty little secret is that if a vital organ is still living then the person is still living. The ability to think or feel pain is irrelevant. If the person is truly dead then all of his organs have died also. Vital organs cannot be removed without committing murder. This may be harsh to those who need these organs but we cannot treat persons as merely objects to be used for our own benefit.
