The Girl Who Wouldn't Die: Miracle of
Danish Girl Who Woke Up as Doctors
Were Preparing to Harvest Her Organs

A teenage girl in a coma after a catastrophic car crash came round just as doctors were about to declare her brain dead. Carina Melchior had had life support withdrawn on the advice of medics and was being prepared for organ donation. But to the astonishment of staff at the Aarhus Hospital, in Denmark, the 19-year-old suddenly opened her eyes and started moving her legs. She is now making a good recovery at a rehabilitation centre and is able to walk, talk and even ride her horse Mathilde.

A quote from a Monty Python movie comes to mind.

Talk about a close call!

'''Those bandits in white coats gave up too quickly because they wanted an organ donor,' her father Kim told the Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet.'' - article. Exactly. If she hadn't moved they would have harvested the organs of a living human being.

Question: Are "brain dead" people really dead? We used to say you were dead when your heart stopped and you stopped breathing. We invented brain death for the purpose of harvesting organs. Sometimes this is probably good if the person is really unconscious (how do we know?) and soon dying and their organs can help someone else. But there are a number of cases like this when people who have been declared brain dead or the looser "persistent vegitative state" unexpectedly revive. the problem is compounded when those making the decision to pull the plug have an interest in getting the organs, or the inheritance. or the freedom to marry someone else, or to help the hospital budget..

Jokes aside this is why everyone should keep his own counsel on organ donation and avoid being swayed by all the publicity and soul butter.

Ocassionally the do-gooders get carried away with burnishing their altruistic credentials and don't focus on the organs' original owner.

I am not an organ donor, nor do I have riches, so my kids won't be pushing for my death. The bad news is that being on Medicare I won't get the extra needed care so I'll be offed anyway.

I took my donor notice off my driver's license because I don't trust Obama's government or his government-approved doctors and death panels. I've told my husband and kids that if, like the Wicked Witch, I'm really most sincerely dead, they can do whatever they like with my organs. It's just not a decision I'm willing to blindly turn over to bureaucrats.

For those with the patience to read a really good book, "Cutting for Stone" has a rather caustic analysis of the transplant organ market, although you have to read 600 pages or so before you get to it.

For months Mrs C (a medical type) read to a lady who was brain dead. She spoke to her, sang to her and even fixed her hair.
Then one day the lady woke up. She remembered it all.
It was a bit of an eye opener, so to speak.

Terry Schiavo was not available for comment.

Truly, the vessel God gave us to contain our souls is so poorly understood by we mere humans.

Why, it might even be possible for the body to resist impregnation when under extreme stress!!!

If you are a member of the 53% of the US population who actually pays income taxes, due today without a penalty, perhaps this chart from the Internal Revenue Service and analyzed by Mark J. Perry of AEIdeas will make you feel better. Or not. IRS data: The top 1% pay 37% of all taxes, the bottom half pay 2%, a blubbering David Letterman can’t believe the facts. IRS data for 2009 (most recent year available) are displayed above and show that the top 1% of US taxpayers (about 819,000 filers) paid 37% of all federal income taxes collected, the

   

 



 
Editorial: Chicago´s pension reckoning

If lawmakers in Springfield thought they maneuvered beyond the treacherous topic of pension reform with their December votes to begin rescuing the state´s floundering pension system, they thought wrong. Chicago, with its enormously underfunded pension plans, is next in line. Three years into his mayoral term — after campaigning on a promise to fix pensions — Rahm Emanuel finally is ready to file legislation that would reduce the city´s dangerously unfunded pension liabilities for municipal workers and laborers. Emanuel says he has a deal with those employees´ unions that would bring two of the city´s four funds for retirees closer

Denver - Denver is submitting its bid today to host the Republican National Convention in 2016. Denver hosted the Democratic National Convention in 2008 and the first presidential debate during the 2012 race. Colorado Republican party chairman Ryan Call told 7NEWS Friday that the key downtown venues were at the center of a plan to bring the 2016 RNC to Denver. Call says under the proposal, the Pepsi Center will serve as the principal event site -- hosting key speeches and the nominating process. He adds that Coors Field is the proposed site for a welcome reception. The Colorado Convention Center would also serve as

Memo to House GOP

Election Day is almost nine months off. But right now Republicans seem almost certain to hold the House of Representatives and are likely to take the Senate. Which raises the inevitable question: How might the GOP seize defeat from the jaws of victory? Two occasions stand out, two obvious obstacles ahead that could lead to disastrous Republican stumbles, two pitfalls on the path to a happy GOP Election Day. Republicans are pretty good at falling into such pits. One is the increase in the debt limit, which Congress will have to deal with in the next month or two. The other

Why the ‘Duck Dynasty’
Controversy Could Hurt Democrats

The left thinks everyone who opposes gay marriage is some bigot like Phil Robertson. That intolerance could come back to sting Democrats in November. Until very recently I had no idea who or what Duck Dynasty was. But now I, along with the rest of the English-speaking world, know far more about Duck Dynasty than I care to. But I am preparing myself for the reality that I will be hearing those two words endlessly over the course of the next year. Because unlike many media scandals that come and go after a 24 hour news cycle, I believe the Duck Dynasty controversy will have legs. Not only will the controversy linger, it might reignite the culture war that has traditionally hurt Democrats, especially

Katie Couric is set to quit her troubled chat show little more than a year after its launch on ABC, MailOnline can reveal. The 56-year-old news veteran had wanted to see out her vision for the series - but will announce a new interview show with Yahoo in the next few days. And despite the fact her eponymous show, Katie, enjoyed a five-week ratings high last month, a source confirmed her show is poised to end on ABC at the end of its second season. Today, a source confirmed Katie was in ´ongoing negotiations with Yahoo adding: ´There´s a very

Amendment 66, education tax has failed

Posted By: zephyrgirl- 11/5/2013 10:20:30 PM     Post Reply
DENVER - Amendment 66, the K-12 education funding measure, has failed in Colorado. Even in Democratic strongholds of Boulder and Denver counties, the measure was failing or barely even. Amendment 66 constitutionally and statutorily would alter Colorado law to change how the state funds education. Firstly, it raises the state individual income tax rate from 4.63 percent to 5 percent on the first $75,000 of taxable income. That is equivalent to $472.5 if you earn exactly $75,000 in taxable income per year. If you earn more, any income beyond the $75,000 is taxed at a rate of 5.9 percent.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

White babies just 15 months old show racial

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than
