… The truth behind organ donation & organ transplants

OPPOSE
ORGAN
DONATION

Dr David W Evans

Dr David W Evans , Retired Consultant in Cardiology, says: “Human organ transplantation is Wrong because it necessitates the abuse of the dying or harming the healthy. Doctors should not be involved in such things… I don’t know how any doctor can operate on his patient not for his good but knowingly to do him harm.” [more]

OPPOSE
ORGAN
DONATION

Dr David J Hill

Dr David J Hill , Retired consultant anaesthetist, says: “The Diagnosis of Death for Transplant Purposes has no international consensus and in the UK… depends upon testing only a few cubic centimetres of tissue in the brainstem for loss of function… Live organs can only come from living bodies. ” [more]

OPPOSE
ORGAN
DONATION

Dr Paul A Byrne

Dr Paul A Byrne , neonatalogist and pediatrician, says: “In order to be suitable for transplant, (heart, liver, lungs, kidneys and pancreas) need to be removed from the donor before respiration and circulation cease. Otherwise, these organs are not suitable, since damage to the organs occurs within a brief time after circulation of blood with oxygen stops.” [more]

OPPOSE
ORGAN
DONATION

Dr John B Shea

Dr John B Shea , retired diagnostic radiologist & Fellow of Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons of Canada, says: “Many physicians have serious and well-considered concerns about morality of human organ transplantation … the general public has not been properly informed about what really happens when organs are retrieved.” [more]

OPPOSE
ORGAN
DONATION

Bereaved mother

Bereaved mother (Bernice Jones) says: “ Brain death is not death” and “organ donation is very deceptive”. “Families are led to believe that their loved ones are dead, but in fact they are alive. You must be alive to be a vital organ donor.” [more]

OPPOSE
ORGAN
DONATION

Nurse Ellen B Linde

Nurse Ellen B Linde , senior graduate teaching assistant, University of Scranton, says: “Some, believing that removing vital organs is what kills the patient, view organ donation… as an act of killing… not all nurses are comfortable with a value system driven primarily by the needs of transplant recipients rather than by the needs of the potential donor.” [more]

OPPOSE
ORGAN
DONATION

Earl E. Appleby Jr

Earl E. Appleby Jr , Director, Citizens United Resisting Euthanasia, says: “Anyone unwise enough to have signed an organ donor card also has legitimate cause for concern. Would you trust a doctor who regards your body “not as an organism in need of healing but as a container of biological useful materials” … That’s exactly what organ donors do. ” [more]

OPPOSE
ORGAN
DONATION

Michael Potts

Michael Potts , medical ethicist, says: “Any action that directly causes the death of a patient, even if it is for the good of others, opposes the goal of medicine not to harm that individual patient… It is precisely whether transplantation kills the donor that is the key issue that cuts to the heart of the goals of medicine.” [more]

Doctors & scholars refute “brain death” as criterion for real death

Doctors & scholars conference on brain death, Rome, May 2019

ROME, Italy, May 22, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – An international group of distinguished medical doctors and scholars refuted “brain death” as a legitimate criterion for determining actual death at a two-day conference in Rome, titled “A Medicolegal Construct: Scientific &emp; Philosophical Evidence,”. The conference was hosted by the lay-led John Paul II Academy for Human Life and the Family at Hotel Massimo d’Azeglio in Rome.

Dr Josef Seifert opened the conference with his talk: “Brain Death” is not Death: Philosophical and Scientific Evidence in Brief.

Dr Paul A Byrne spoke about:“Brain Death” is not Death: Clinical Experience.

Dr Doyen Nguyen spoke on: Substance and Organism as a Whole Sed Contra to Moschella’s pro-“Brain Death” Rationale.

Dr Alan Shewmon spoke on: Insights into Integration: What Makes an Organism a Whole?

Dr Cicero Coimbra M.D. speaking in Rome 2019

The main theme that of the conference is that “brain death” was invented to enable harvesting of vital organs from still-living, breathing people. According to LifeSiteNews, Dr Paul A Byrne repeatedly stated in his talks that: “you cannot take viable organs from a cadaver. The body needs to have a beating heart to maintain organ health.… What’s really happening is that a multi-billion dollar industry has been created around the harvesting of organs. But organ damage occurs within minutes of death. Knowing they need to excise organs before a person dies, the medical community uses the term ‘brain death’ to say the person is dead. But these patients are not dead! The ‘organ donation’ procedure is what actually kills them. It stops their heart. DO NOT BE AN ORGAN DONOR.”

Dr. Cicero Coimbra M.D. said that apnea tests, a common procedure used on “brain dead” patients, actually cause irreversible “brain death” (in his paper: Apnea Test Procedure versus Aggressive Therapy for Alleged “Brain Dead” Patients).

Other speakers included Fr. Edmund Waldstein, a Cistercian monk from Austria (Critique of the “Brain Death” Concept); Illinois-based neurologist Thomas Zabiega (The “Birth” of “Brain Death”) and Bishop Athanasius Schneider (via a pre-recorded video message: Truth, the Foundation of a Culture of Life).
