Parents of injured 18 year old claim that the hospital harvested their son’s organs before he was declared legally dead.
“The Jabobs’ [the parents] attorney, Dennis Boyle added, “Our experts are telling us that, had his organs not been taken, he may very well have survived and recovered from this accident.”
The only two points I would add are that I know a gal whom I would trust with my life (known her since she was 11–she’s now 27) who has 9 years experience as an EMT and also as an E.R. nurse who swears that hospitals and EMTs don’t try as hard to “save” organ donors. And it sounds like common sense to me. “Hmmmm. We think this patient will die anyway, so let’s get his organs before they are ruined in order to save somebody else.”
That said, I’m proud to have “organ donor” listed on my driver’s license. Anybody who could use my liver must be desperate. And all the liberals will verify I’m heartless…
“All the Irish do is get drunk and sing sad songs about dropping dead. Once a year, we let them march down the street, all boozed up on their disgusting warm brown beer. Then they stuff themselves with potatoes and cabbage and stink up the place!…” [Yeah? What’s yer point!?]
“What have the Irish ever done for America? They stuck us with those damn Kennedys, that’s what. Between their Old Man the crooked bootlegger, down to fat Teddy boy, that family is an embarrassment, not to mention a danger to public safety! Ralph Nader fellow should’ve left General Motors alone and gone after the Kennedys. The [Kennedy’s] cars should have warning labels instead of bumper stickers….”
That said, I’m a good 1/4 Irish (mebbe more– me ma’s da was adopted and of questionable lineage, so it could be as high as 1/2) AND I WILL be joining in the festivities tomorrow. The Kennedys be damned!
Hopefully, something we can all agree on. Continue reading →
