Some will say these patients weren't really brain "dead." But they were all declared brain dead. So if the brain death diagnosis is so inaccurate, it needs to be rethought. What's happening instead is that "ethics" groups are arguing for taking organs from patients who aren't even diagnosed as brain dead but have catastrophic injuries. Hey, their "quality of life" will be so bad they should be killed for their organs so somebody more worthy of life can get them. 

It's simple, folks. "Brain dead" means still alive. It's a diagnosis developed out of thin air in the late 1960s in order to provide fresh organs for the voracious organ donation industry. There's plenty of money to be made there including on the black market. Check here, here and here (Note the table on p. 3 showing the cost of organ transplants. Consider that the organs are donated. Somebody's making a bundle!). It ain't rocket science to know somebody is dead. They have no heartbeat; they aren't breathing; their body is cold and blue; and blood is pooling at the pressure points. Until that happens, you can't be sure they're dead, no matter how many medical folks in lab coats try to convince you otherwise. And Dr. Paul Byrne isn't the only one disputing it.

Zack Dunlap was never properly diagnosed. a cursory check was made while the inflammation from the trauma was still evident.

this is why wait times and multiple independent evaluations are required for proper diagnosis.

And how many patients get that? Let the patient beware. The rush to declare brain death is on. Unless the family fights, sometimes in court, the default position is declare brain death asap while the organ harvesting team pressures the family.

Jahi and Israel both got that. Jahi has been tested a total of seven times. melissa did not because the family is trying to block the hospital from doing its job.
