“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup
I came across your blog while researching, "What gives human life value". What deems an individual life greater worth saving or assisting than another.
Your topic is very interesting, my view of organ donation is it should be automatic. Limited only in situations of religion. I also believe people should be able to "profit" from such a generous and selfless act. Maybe additional assistance with burial cost would drive donation. Unfortunately, in order for people to do the right thing, they have to see it in their best interest.
Patrick McMahon, tried to expose the Organ Network's actions similar to what you discussed in your article. Then, the case of Vincent Liew. It is a slippery slope. Next they will argue only low income minorities are harvested at a higher rate. Why wouldn't anyone want to give their life for the greater good of society?
You are not her. You have only in common a disease. You don't know her level of pain. Her past or present psychological trauma. Memories and experiences can't be washed away with Oxy or Morphine. Or, access to resources.
Thank you for your comment. MDP
