… The truth behind organ donation & organ transplants
“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.”
“Every donor is killed in the process,” he stated.
Dr Byrne was the guest speaker at a pro-life event in Leominster, Massachussetts on November 11, where he presented a talk entitled “Protect Life. Learn the Truth about… The Affordable Care Act - Euthanasia - Brain Death - Organ Transplants”
Dr. Byrne insisted that there’s no such thing as “brain death”, saying “Brain death was a lie from the beginning. It has always been a lie.”
“Brain death is not true death,” he continued. “Organ transplant is the reason you have to have brain death.”
Dr. Byrne said this term crept into the medical profession following the world’s first heart transplant in 1968. It has since been defined and redefined and is now being replaced by another term known as cardiac death, he noted.
He said donated organs, without exception, must come from a living person. Within minutes of “true death,” which, he explained, is the cessation of circulation and respiration, the organs will begin to die. This is why, when organs are removed from a donor, the beating heart is always taken last. “You cannot get any organs from cadavers,” he noted. “If you’re really dead, then no organs can be extracted.”
Recovery after being declared “brain dead” is also possible, says Dr Byrne, who then demonstrated his point with a televised clip of Zach Dunlap, who spontaneously revived after being declared “brain dead”. He said there are now 175 known long-term survivors of “brain death.”
Dr. Paul Byrne, author of “Finis Vitae”, is a renowned lecturer and medical expert who educates the public on commonly misunderstood life issues. Dr. Byrne centered his medical career in the field of neonatology and held many prestigious positions at universities and medical associations. He reaches audiences far and wide through his lecture circuits, publications, films and Life Guardian Foundation, a pro-life organization based in Vancouver, Washington. Dr. Byrne is past president of the Catholic Medical Association (USA) and has directed the neonatology and pediatrics departments at Charles Mercy Hospital in Oregon, Ohio.
