… The truth behind organ donation & organ transplants
A young woman wants to ride her pony, one year after doctors in Denmark targeted her for “organ donation”.
Carina Melchior suffered severe injuries after crashing her car in Denmark in October 2011. Doctors said that she was virtually “brain dead”. Today she is now making a full recovery and is able to walk and talk.
LifeSiteNews reports that:
Carina was admitted to hospital with severe injuries and slipped into a coma. Doctors advised her parents that there was little chance for her survival, that brain death would probably occur within days, and suggested withdrawing life support and making preparations for organ donation.
The parents agreed, and Carina was taken off her respirator but continued to breathe on her own.
Doctors were actually gathered around Carina’s bedside discussing her supposed “brain death” and the possibility of organ donation, when she suddenly opened her eyes and began moving her legs. Carina’s father told Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet: “Those bandits in white coats gave up too quickly because they wanted an organ donor”.
Carina keeps asking if the doctors are trying to kill her. The family’s lawyer said that the whole incident caused “great trauma” to Carina and her family, and they are now suing the hospital for damages.
The case raises more serious questions about the definition of so-called “brain death” and the callous behaviour of doctors and hospitals in pressuring families to abandon their loved ones to organ harvesting.
Look out for more on this case as a Danish documentary has been made, entitled “The Girl Who Refused To Die” (danish: “Pigen der ikke ville dø”).
