Obama Wants Your Organs*

Posted by Laka , Oct 14 2009 · 319 views

*Exaggerated for emphasis etc...

But, apparently, the government does want your organs. Not so much in the "Hey be an organ donor to help someone else kinda way," but more like the "If you don't want us to pull your organs out of your body when you die, you have to explicitly tell us/Give us your organs or lose your license" kinda way.

So here we go. Obama's nominee for the head of the OIRA wrote a book with some other guy about organ donor type things. Basically, he thinks presumed consent is better than what we have going right now. That means, unless you tell someone [not entirely sure who] you don't want your organs harvested when you're dead, the hospital is just gonna swipe them, if possible. I don't remember the government being able to do whatever they wanted with dead bodies unless you specifically tell them not to....

So now do I have to tell everyone on the street not to kill me? (Exaggerated for emphasis again yay)

This guy also advocates mandated choice. I'll just give the tl;dr version. In order to retain certain privileges, you have to sign up for something. You want your drivers license renewed? No problem! Just sign here and tell us you'll be an organ donor.


Now, I'm all for organ donating. If you would rather have your organs shipped to someone who can actually use them, be my guest. I just don't like the government making me tell them not to take things out of my body. The whole thing just smells funky to me. And if they do go through with this presumed choice thing, what's to keep them from moving to mandated choice later?


Yo, staffies. I'll try to monitor this entry fairly well to avoid political discussion. If some pops up, I'll lock it or delete the comments or something.

I'm sure it'll be like the donor system for licenses, but in reverse.

Tbh I want my organs harvested so I can haunt the people who receive them

Didn't you know? They already "own" your body. At least, according to some funky voodoo legal bits of paper that I won't get into because ziplip.gif

physical body matters little tbh. earthly rulers don't get power over the soul.

Oh you guys. I was kidding. tongue.gif

... But I did hear that from at least a couple of sources who actually seemed to know what they were talking about. So it could be true. Not that it makes any difference. YOUR LEGAL PERSON IS A STRAWMAN. In other words, fiction. Imaginary. Like Santa Claus. Just remember that and you'll be fine. xmas.gif
