… 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]

Was Not Dead!

Christina Nichole

“Don’t cut me open — don’t hurt me! Let me wake up!.” While doctors hovered over her bed… discussing organ donation, Christina Nichole could hear every word they said – and their conversation terrified her.

Christina Nichole suffered severe hypoglycemia (her blood sugar levels dropped) on July 15, 2004 after taking the medication Zyprexa and she lapsed in and out of coma. Doctors transferred her to Sacred Heart Medical Center, Spokane WA and placed her on life support in Neuro ICU. Doctors could only theorise as to what caused her condition. Then Christina was paralysed with powerful drugs to prevent her hyperventilating.

Christina Nichole Thornsberry in coma

After only six days, Dr. Bender, Head Neurologist for Christina during her coma, and Dr Palukuru reported that she had “severe global brain injury” and, diagnosed her as “brain dead” with no chance of recovery. They recommended “reduction in the level of care” and no further tests. (Facts based on medical report viewed 17 November 2013 at http://pekingeseshihtzu.wordpress.com/christina-nicholes-coma/)

Christina was paralysed and could not move or cry out or respond in any way to any communication, but her mother refused to give up on her and knew that her daughter was actually still alive. “I knew she was still in there and I started working to prove that”, Judy Thornsberry told the South Beach Bulletin. But it wasn’t easy to convince doctors, who started pressuring Christina’s parents to donate her organs. The family reports that:
Doctors thought that Christine was dead, but she was actually alive and heard every word they said

It was clear that they wanted to kill her and harvest whatever they could from her body because they harassed us for 10 days to sign papers to allow them to do that. Why did they want her dead? Government insurance? Body parts on the market? We want answers and no one wants to answer the questions.

Christina’s blog site reports that:

While doctors hovered over her bed… she (Christina) could hear every word they said – and their conversation terrified her. They were talking about harvesting her organs for transplant! They said she was brain-dead – no chance she’d ever recover. But they didn’t realize that although she couldn’t move or speak Christina was still very much alive.

The National Enquirer reports that “Judy stayed at her daughter’s bedside for days to watch for signs that there was life inside her frozen body.” She urged her to blink. Then she felt a tiny movement of Christina’s eyelids. Doctors told Judy that she was ‘imagining’ it.

But Judy persisted, and asked Christina questions, to which she blinked once for Yes and twice for No. Still the doctors dismissed these signs as merely ‘spontaneous movements’.

Then, after ten days in coma, Christina made a clear sign to doctors that she was still there inside her body… very much alive and aware of what was happening to her:

Mom told me… to squeeze the neurologist’s finger. She put my hand around his finger, and I squeezed with all my strength ‐ and felt him pull away!
(Christina recalled for the National Enquirer)

From that moment everything changed and the doctors and staff began treating Christina as a patient instead of a corpse. “ They started fighting for Christina’s life instead of just her organs”, Judy told the National Enquirer.

Christina was transferred to rehabilitation, and within six weeks she was well enough to go home. Thank God she had a mother who would not give up on her in her hour of desperate need.

Christina’s coma story is published in “The National Enquirer”, April 13, 2009 issue, “The South Beach Bulletin”, April 16, 2009 issue, “Real People” magazine in London England, #5-2016 issue, and “People” magazine in South Africa, October 9, 2009 Vol. 23 #41 issue.
