Organ Transplantation Stops... A Beating Heart?

A friend just sent this article to me:
Here's my thoughts:

This is logical.
Man is an animal. Each man defines his own reality: there is no God to answer to. The strong prey upon the weak. Only the strongest survive.

As secular humanists and Marxist-Leninsts begin to shed their inconsistent shreds of morality, we're going to see a lot more of this.

This isn't the first case. At least these children were born, at least someone saw them, and at least only their hearts were taken -- but not sold! The children who are the victims of abortion or embryonic stem cell research don't have the chance to be born, their families never see them, and their bodies are either discarded like trash, or sold for profit.

"Because the procedures reopened so many contentious fault lines, two other ethicists proposed scrapping the fundamental ethical tenet that has guided organ transplantation for decades: the 'dead donor rule,' which states that organs should never be removed from a patient who is not dead." (stance of Robert D. Truog of Harvard Medical School and Franklin G. Miller of the National Institutes of Health)


"You shall not murder." -- God, 6th Commandment
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." -- Declaration of Independence
"Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.
" -- Isaiah 5:20

The article doesn't even address the reason why, to this point, a person had to be dead before their organs could be removed. This was logical to a society that acknowledged the existence and authority of the God of the Bible, and the special role of man, who was made in God's image.

To a society that has rejected God's revealed truth, it is illogical to protect vulnerable lives. You'll notice the prestigious groups that Truog and Miller represent. These are not people on the fringe: these are successful, influential men consistently living out their worldviews.

God deal with our society before it becomes entirely consistent with the lies it has accepted.
