Was Not Dead
Organ transplants can only occur because doctors get access to the still viable, living organs of living, breathing patients with beating hearts. Harvesting their vital organs (eg: heart, lungs and liver) results in the donor’s real death.
This is only possible and legal, because doctors invented a new kind of death called “brain death”, which allows them to “diagnose” severely brain-injured patients as “brain dead” or “practically dead” and to be considered as nothing more than a “heart-beating cadaver” from which they can then harvest organs at will.
Doctors don’t want organs from truly dead corpses, since they would already be non-viable and starting to decompose. This was the problem with early heart transplant surgery, hence their need to invent the medical fiction known as “brain death”.
However, Dr John Shea points out that:
the very definition of “brain death” is vague and inconsistent: “There is no consensus on diagnostic criteria for brain death. They are the subject of intense international debate. Various sets of neurological criteria for the diagnosis of brain death are used.”
“A diagnosis of death by neurological criteria is theory, not scientific fact,” writes Shea. “Also, irreversibility of neurological function is a prognosis, not a medically observable fact.”
(quotes from LifeSiteNews article cited below.)
There are many cases of patients who have survived so-called “brain death” , and went on to live and walk and talk again. Some patients even revived without sustained medical treatment. I hope you will take the time to review some of the survivor cases listed on this page. Just click on the relevant links.
