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

Mail Online (UK), by Sara Malm

Original Article

Posted By:zephyrgirl, 10/17/2012 6:00:10 PM

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 Carina Melchior had had life support withdrawn on the advice of medics and was being prepared for organ donation.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.

Frightening.

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.

Then one day the lady woke up. She remembered it all.
It was a bit of an eye opener, so to speak.

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.

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

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.

Some health insurance gets pricier as

Thousands of Californians are discovering what Obamacare will cost them — and many don´t like what they see. These middle-class consumers are staring at hefty increases on their insurance bills as the overhaul remakes the healthcare market. Their rates are rising in large part to help offset the higher costs of covering sicker, poorer people who have been shut out of the system for years. Although recent criticism of the healthcare law has focused on website glitches and early enrollment snags, experts say sharp price increases for individual policies have the greatest potential to erode public support for President Obama´s

Kelly Ayotte is no stranger to the difficult balancing act of politics. In the 2010 New Hampshire Senate primary, the Republican state attorney general trumpeted an endorsement from Sarah Palin to help her fend off a tough GOP challenger, who had attempted to outflank her on the right. Then Ayotte tracked closely enough to the center to blow out her Democratic opponent, U.S. Rep. Paul Hodes, by 23 percentage points in the general election. (In the process, she won all 10 of the state’s counties.) Once she arrived in Washington, it wasn’t long before Ayotte began being mentioned as a

Immigration overhaul legislation has been dormant in the House for months, but a few Republicans are working behind the scenes to advance it at a time the Capitol is immersed in a partisan brawl over government spending and President Barack Obama´s health care law. The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, has been discussing possible legal status for the estimated 11 million immigrants living in the U.S. illegally. He´s also been working with House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, a fellow Virginia Republican, on a bill offering citizenship to immigrants brought illegally

One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras.

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in
