WARNING: Vital organs need to come from living donors to be usable. The life you save by reviewing this information could very well be your own!

Organ donation and transplantation have covertly been turned into a very profitable industry for the sale of body parts!
Most people become organ donors when they apply for a driver’s license or state ID card. The clerk at the motor vehicle agency is obligated to ask each and every applicant whether or not they wish to be an organ donor. If you say yes, your name is added to the state organ donor registry and an organ donor emblem is put on your driver’s license or state ID card. If you say no, your name will not be entered into the registry and there will be no record of your refusal. But, if and when you renew your Driver’s license or state ID, you will be asked again . . . and again . . . and again.Obtaining human organs and tissues from men and women for research, education, therapy and transplant has become a commercial for-profit industry. To be able to successfully transplant hearts, lungs, livers, and kidneys etc., they need to come from people who still have a beating heart and are breathing or being artificially ventilated. The effort of getting people to consent to being an organ donor is extremely well funded and has become a very aggressive market industry.
Legally in the United States removing vital organs would be murder, unless a new definition of death is created, which is exactly what was done by an ad hoc committee at Harvard in 1968 and they called it ‘brain dead’; up until then there was no such medical term! A person was declared dead only after their breathing and heart stopped for a determinate period of time. When surgeons realized they had the capability of taking organs from one seemingly “close to death” person and implanting them into another person to keep the recipient alive longer, a “Pandora’s Box” was opened. To justify their experimental procedures, it was necessary for them to come up with a solution which is how the term “Brain Death” was contrived.
The criteria for labeling someone ‘brain dead’ has changed many times since the 60’s. Each time becoming less and less stringent. This information, put out to the public on Life Connection of Ohio’s website – which also has links to a sign-up form for the Ohio Department of Public Safety, Bureau of Motor Vehicles, Donor Registry Enrollment program – is blatantly FALSE, as is the definition of death in the Ohio Revised Code: 2108.40 Definition of death. “An individual is dead if the individual has sustained either irreversible cessation of circulatory and respiratory functions or irreversible cessation of all [??] functions of the brain, including the brain stem, as determined in accordance with accepted medical standards.[??] If the respiratory and circulatory functions of a person are being artificially sustained, under accepted medical standards [??] a determination that death has occurred is made by a physician by observing and conducting a test [the potentially lethal apnea test] to determine that the irreversible [??] cessation of all [??] functions of the brain has occurred.”
Hospitals today use the ‘apnea test’. The unconscious critically ill or injured patient is removed from the ventilator for 10 minutes to see if he or she can breathe adequately on their own. If they can’t, they are declared ‘brain dead’ and put back on the ventilator for additional seventy-five seconds longer, long enough for the organ extraction to take place, or until organ recipients are located and contacted. Then their vital organs are extracted, causing their death. From New England Journal of Medicine article of Aug 14, 2008 titled The Dead Donor Rule and Organ Transplantation:
Most organ donors are only given something that induces paralysis, while having their organs ripped from the bodies without the benefit of anesthesia due to the nebulous diagnosis of ‘brain-dead’. Nurses and anesthesiologists have charted a significant increase in the donor’s pulse and blood pressure during the removal process indicating they were experiencing severe amounts pain.
In September 2012, A whistleblower filed a lawsuit against The New York Organ Donor Network, claiming that they pressured hospital staffers to declare patients ‘brain dead’ so their body parts could be harvested while they are still alive. Patrick McMahon, 50, an Air Force combat veteran and nurse practitioner says he was fired as a transplant coordinator after just four months for protesting the practice. McMahon also added that financially strained hospitals are easily influenced to declare a patient ‘brain dead’ because they’re keen to free up bed space. He said that the donor network makes “millions and millions” from selling the organs they obtain to hospitals and to insurance companies for transplants. “Hearts, lungs, kidneys, joints, bones, skin graphs, intestines, valves, eyes — it’s all big money,” he said. McMahon says that staff members who collect the most organs get a Christmas bonus at the end of the year.
The lawsuit highlights three instances in which patients were still clinging to life when doctors made an official declaration that they were ‘brain dead’, so that a transplant can take place. On one account, the complaint states that, in November 2011, a woman had been admitted to Staten Island University Hospital after a drug overdose, was declared ‘brain dead’ and her organs were about to be harvested when McMahon observed she was being given “a paralyzing anesthetic” because her body was still jerking. “She was having brain function when they were cutting into her on the table.” McMahon told Mail Online. “He had given her a paralyzer and there’s no reason to give someone who is dead a paralyzer.” He said he confronted the person who gave it to her and he was speechless. “Finally, he said he was told to do it because while they were cutting her chest open, she was moving her chest around. And a paralyzer only paralyses you, it does nothing for the pain,” he said.
On September 2011, a 19-year-old man severely injured in a car wreck was admitted to Nassau University Medical Center.He was still trying to breathe and showed signs of brain activity, the suit charged. But doctors declared him ‘brain dead’ under pressure from donor-network officials, including Director Michael Goldstein, who allegedly said during a conference call: “This kid is dead, you got that?”
Again, in September 2011 a lady was admitted into St. Barnabas Hospital in The Bronx still showing obvious signs of life. She had a kidney transplant earlier in life and using this information network officials pressured her daughter into giving consent. McMahon objected that the woman was still alive, but this was ignored by a neurologist, who declared her ‘brain dead’ — and her organs were harvested.
The donation and transplant industry are a multi-billion-dollar enterprise. In 1996, Forbes Magazine published a series on this issue.
Most donors think their organs will only be removed after they are officially pronounced dead. They are not told that certain organs like the heart, lungs, kidneys and liver must be removed while the heart is still beating and blood is still circulating. These organs degenerate as soon as they are denied oxygenated blood. So, to be able to use them for transplantation they must be removed from what most would consider as living donors. Essentially none of the people who agree to be organ donors have given “a valid informed consent” to do so. This might be the case if potential donors were given all of the pertinent information about organ transplantation, but they are not. It is important to understand that most organ recipients are also NOT told about the nefarious methodology used in acquiring organs or the cost of keeping the transplanted organ functioning!
FACTS ABOUT ORGAN DONATING:
- There is no ‘informed’ consent when it comes to organ donation and transplantation.
- Most donors of vital organs are not told there are two types of donors: a) living donors (organs) and b) dead donors (tissues).
- Potential donors are never told that their organs could be extracted while they are still alive – without the benefit of anesthesia.
- Potential recipients are not given all of the facts regarding the high cost of post-transplant medication and the limited Medicare and insurance benefits.
- Many men and women are not being given ample opportunity to recover their injuries, because their lives are prematurely terminated so their vital organs can be removed and sold! This is justified because they have ‘consented’ to be organ donors – without being fully informed!
CALL TO ACTION:
- Remove yourself from the state’s donor registry
- Say no to becoming an organ donor and discuss your objections with your family.
- Take a permanent marker and write NO over the emblem on their driver’s licenses or state IDs
- Never sign (revoke if necessary) advanced directives, living wills or Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) orders
- If married the spouse automatically has medical power of attorney. If not married and over 18 years old, they need to assign someone they trust to be their medical power of attorney (in writing)
- Help educate the public, especially loved ones, about the dangerous ‘brain dead’ fraud being perpetrated upon them by the “transplantation enterprise”
