|Carina Melchior described as "dead" in 2011 and|
prepped for organ donation is alive today and recovering.
Brain "death" is a lie to collect organs for a hungry industry.
Abraham Lincoln once asked how many legs a dog has if you call his tail a leg. Your answer?
Does pretending make a thing so? When I play horsie with my grandbabies am I really a horse? I have a sister who does a really good imitation of an elephant trumpeting. When she does that is she an elephant? Apparently in today's society some people would think so.
Rick Santorum stupidly said that if Bruce Jenner says he's a woman he's a woman. Huh? No, Rick, he's just a man who's mutilated his body and dressed up like a woman.
If I say I'm a pickle or a cantaloupe or Napoleon, does that make it so? If someone came up to you and said, "I'm a guide dog and you need me," and started following you around barking what would you do? Call animal control?
Let's get real.
Saying something is so doesn't make it so. Many high rise buildings don't have a floor 13 button in the elevator. Does that mean there's no thirteenth floor? Is floor thirteen in the Twilight Zone?
It's time for our culture to stop playing pretend and face the facts. Babies in the womb are babies. They aren't blobs of protoplasm or clumps of cells. People who are brain injured, no matter how severely debilitated, are not brain "dead." They're alive. Neither are they "vegetables." We all know what a carrot looks like. Does it resemble your grandmother?
Words mean something. When they are being distorted, you can be sure there's malice afoot. With the brain "dead" it's all about making that designation come true so you can take a living patient's organs and give them to someone else who has a better "quality of life." But in order to convince the family to do it, you have to dehumanize the injured or sick living person by calling them "dead" when they aren't.
We've seen word manipulation to dehumanize people throughout history. Words like kike, spic, coon, cracker, bitch, mackerel snapper, chink, gook, trailer trash, etc. The slur list is enormous! And it's all about one group using words to dehumanize a disfavored group. When the dehumanization involves one class of people deliberately killing another, it's genocide.
And so I'm going to call organ "harvesting" of the debilitated exactly what it is -- genocide against a particular class of people, the seriously injured and debilitated, described as dead when they are, in fact, alive. It's a lot easier to take a heart from a "dead" person than admit the person is alive and that taking his heart will kill him. And if you are using that heart to "save another's life," well...you can stand on the moral high ground and pretend you aren't committing a murder because your intentions are so pure and holy -- like the ISIS terrorists who are doing Allah's will.
Get the facts and fight the "let's pretend" culture that uses words to justify murdering the weak. Please pass this on and fight the lies of the culture of death. We need to follow the Scripture's admonition to "Say yes when you mean yes and no when you mean no."
