“Organ donation is a multi-billion dollar industry… larger than the abortion industry,” according to renowned neonatologist Dr. Paul A. Bryne. “Every organ that’s transplanted is a healthy one and every organ that is transplanted comes from a living person,” he said, adding that these are taken out of bodies with a “beating heart and circulation.”… (more)
A respected Melbourne medical ethicist claims that patients in ICUs are being declared “brain dead” for organ donation while still legally alive. Professor Nicholas Tonti-Filippini claims in a new book that medical practice is moving away from legally established criteria for determining “brain death”, to a more pliable definition, in which the crucial aspect is lack of consciousness. Prof. Tonti-Filippini’ claims are endorsed by leading Melbourne doctor, Professor James Tibballs, a Deputy Director of Intensive Care at Royal Children’s Hospital, who says the current ANZICS test for “brain death” is neither legal nor ethical, and that MOST donors cannot be proven to be truly dead when organs are removed!

Please Sign Petition→ Stop Organ Donation
The New York Organ Donor Network pressured hospital staffers to declare patients brain dead so their body parts could be harvested while still alive according to a lawsuit filed in New York by an Air Force combat veteran and nurse practitioner who claims he was fired as a transplant coordinator after just four months for protesting the practice. Plaintiff Patrick McMahon alleges at least four instances of living patients being declared ‘brain dead’ so their body parts could be harvested while they were still alive and brain activity and other signs were present.(more)
MOST organ donors in Australia are not truly dead when their organs are taken. And often transplant procedures do not conform with the law, a leading Melbourne doctor has argued. Associate Professor James Tibballs, a pediatric intensive care specialist at the Royal Children’s Hospital, has called for a review of organ donation guidelines to ensure donors know that their organs can be taken when they are DYING and NOT YET DEAD.

Donors often alive when organs harvested according to three leading experts. They argue that the medical community should not require donors to be declared dead, but instead adopt more “honest” moral criteria that allow the harvesting of organs from “dying” or “severely injured” patients, with proper consent. They argue that the “claim” that a donor is “really dead,” is often based upon purely ideological definitions of death designed to expand the organ donor pool. (more)
ROME: February 23, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Bernice Jones came to Rome last week to tell the world that doctors killed her son by removing his organs. “Brain death is not death” and “organ donation is very deceptive,” the bereaved mother told LifeSiteNews.com ...
“Families are led to believe that their loved ones are dead,” Jones told LSN, “but in fact they are alive. You must be alive to be a vital organ donor.” Families, she said, are being deceived by doctors and hospital administrators, “by everyone who is involved in organ transplantation.” The declaration of brain death “is a deception, a violent deception, that your loved one is dead.” ...
Nine years ago, Mrs Jones’ son suffered an accidental gunshot wound to the head and was declared “brain dead” upon arrival at the hospital. He was immediately prepared for the removal of his organs.
Mrs Jones said, “While my family and I thought that our son was being treated for his well-being, to preserve and protect his life, he was not. He was being treated to be an organ donor.”
“His vital organs were being procured not for his benefit but to benefit someone else.”
... without the family’s knowledge, (doctors) had kept him alive on a respirator for 20 hours while flooding his body with fluids and drugs in preparation for what his mother described as a live “dissection” that brought about his death.
