A mother speaks out against organ harvesting

(By Melissa’s Mom, Carolyn Gallaher)

The problem is Ted, that you are not dead when the organs are harvested. Organs can only be retrieved from a patient that is being kept alive by life support until all the organs are brutally cut out. Yes, I for one want to die naturally, not brutally as legal modern day human sacrifice like the Mayan Priest did. Yes I am sure that they were convinced as you are, that we need to sacrifice another human so that we can appease the sun god to let us live a little longer on this earth. To kill someone so that you can live a little longer on this earth is the most selfish act on this earth. To lie and deceive people, telling them that their loved is brain dead when they have known since the first operation that the patient was not dead, but a live. Because only a live person can change his heart rate. Only a live person can perspire. Only alive person can move their limbs. Only a live person can tightened their tummy. This is why the onlookers have to be consoled that the person was really dead, and that they did not in fact just kill a person. A person like Zach Dunlap who was literally minutes from being dissected alive, but is now alive, almost 100 per cent, and is very happy. Good is not good when the benefactor is evil.

To kill someone so you can have their organs, so your private company can prosper is evil. To kill someone for their organs so you can live a little longer is evil. To kill the young and innocent is evil so that the senior citizens can have a little longer life on this earth is evil.

Your are not dead when the organs are brutally cut out of you. I know first hand what organ donation is all about. My daughter was given up on within two hours, while she was breathing, coughing, alive. She lived for six days, she is recorded on medical report to be feeling pain, withdrawing, contracting, breathing and coughing. The medical team did nothing, they stood by and watch my daughter starve, suffer in pain, she only died because her blood volume was below critical levels for six days that eventually caused cardiac arrest. Don’t ever insult my intelligence by telling me that the medical community will do all they can for the brain injured, because if they did, they would all be alive today.

Sincerely yours,

Carolyn
