ER Doctors Want To Steal Our Organs!

ORGANS: YOU HAZ THEMWhen you die in the ER, if you are an organ donor, your organs are not harvested! But now an emergency room-based project, funded by the organ-craving socialists at the Department of Health and Human Services, promises to steal away your organs before you are even brain dead, so as to save other people who need your kidneys and things. There are "questions"! From "some" who think ER doctors "might not do everything possible to save patients and may even hasten their deaths, to increase the chance of obtaining organs." Yes. That's how ER doctors are. Just ready to kill you for your eyeballs. Also? "Experts" are concerned that when people check "yes," instead of "no," on their driver's licenses, in response to the question "would you like to be an organ donor," maybe they are not understanding what that means? Some "experts" think that maybe some people think "organs" and "donor" are confusing? And they are just checking "YES TAKE MY ORGANS" willy-nilly? And so the world's stupidest debate rages on, expressed in the world's stupidest piece of Washington Post newspaper writing.

My granny fell victim to these sharks. Poor lady checks "Yes," waits weeks in vain for someone to pick up the old pipe organ in her parlor, then chokes on a Pecan Sandy and the ER docs steal both kidneys and an eyeball.

Is the pipe organ still available?

Are you on a recipient list? (Yes. Hell. Going. Thanks.)

This won't work at any ER around here, unless they send scalpels out to the waiting room.

Selling organs on the black market is how Obama plans to pay for health care reform. It's in the bill! Wake up, people!

Ironic that the same people running the death panels are also charged with handing out life-giving organs taken from their victims, thereby incentivising their death panel death-causing, which then leads to more life. Or something.

Checking 'yes' or 'no' causes confusion? Thank God we don't have elderly people punching CHADS for this shit.

I saw this episode of "Nurse Jackie". She took a bunch of pain pills.

I would like to be an organ donor, but I'm not that nice of a person.

My father had renal carcinoma and they took a kidney. He was 80 at the time and still thinks the doctor 'stole' it, even though I point out every time he says that that no one wants an 80 yr old kidney from someone who smoked for 70 years.

The world's stupidest piece of WaPo writing? Really? Have we already forgotten Sally Quinn?

Because those who forget Sally Quinn are doomed to repeat Sally Quinn.

Do we have to? I was trying to forget her for my own health and sanity…

I'm not so sure it matters what you put on your driver's license or what your wishes are. If you go to the ER alone, you may not get much of a choice of anything, once the needle goes in your arm. It's your word against theirs.
