Should It Be Allowed Without Prior
Permission Of The Person ?
Organ harvesting has become a large and extremely lucrative international business. A needed organ may cost someone $50,000 or more. I think $50,000 is a bargain.... these organs probably go for much much more than that.
Some people choose to donate their organs by signing legal papers while alive and mentally competent. That is fine....that is their choice and they have every right to make it.
The question is....should death row inmates have their organs taken without their permission? Courts have routinely denied requests of death row inmates to donate their organs....and for good reason....all the methods of execution used today are very damaging to organs. The only way to do it would be to execute the inmate by surgically removing his organs while still alive....obviously he would be dead after that.
This is a very slippery slope....one of the main reasons being the huge profit in this.
Right now the debate is wether an inmate request to donate should be allowed....but we know it won't stop there. Anyone with brains knows how this works. It starts out about allowing requests, then later when they condition us to it more, they try to make it legal without anyones permission. That is very dangerous!....and what's just as dangerous is that the percentage of people with brains in this country is getting smaller.
They are starting with death row inmates because they know the general opinion of people is that these inmates deserve to die anyway as they have killed other people, they are scum, and what do they need their organs for after they are dead? Well fine, but this will not stop at just death row inmates. Eventually the system will make it legal to harvest anyones organs without their permission.
Think about it....who are the institutions and people that will profit from this immensely....doctors and hospitals! If your life is in their hands and they could profit hundreds of thousands of dollars by supplying your badly needed organs to someone....how much of an effort will they make to keep you alive? In the world we live in today where the value of life does not outweigh greed which is out of control....even in alot of our large hospitals....are you going to trust them that much!? If so, you are a fool.
If this ever became legal and I had a loved one in the hospital with a life threatening problem, I would have to hire an armed guard to watch over them.
To some of you more naive people out there, this may seem a little far fetched but it isn't! In other parts of the world people have been kidnapped just for their organs.
Organ harvesting has become big business with an unlimited potential for growth.
Where there is greed and alot of money to be made, anything is possible!
Life is life....we do not owe anyone our organs....to have them taken without a persons prior permission for the so called greater good of society, violates human rights, is dangerous, and just plain wrong!
