What is your take on the Planned Parenthood...selling of tissue deal? I haven't heard a ton about it...but it doesn't sound very ethical (not that I'm an expert)
Just as I already said, every time your blood is drawn there is left over blood after the testing has taken place. Many college level science classes study and learn using human blood and human tissue. They buy this stuff from labs, hospitals, and clinics. Every hospital does it, every lab does it. They always have.
The left over human tissue after a miscarriage (after so many weeks gestation) is also sold to colleges, universities and research facilities. It's always been this way because medical science learning requires examination and further understanding of cells, viruses, bacteria, molds...etc.
This is nothing new folks. It's like the turn of the 20th century when medical students had to hide the fact that they cut up dead humans to learn about the human body. That they took a dead convict who died via lethal injection, froze his body, used a laser to slice his frozen body into tissue thin slices and that was the basis of the MRI. It's how we learn. Macabre? maybe. Necessary? absolutely.
"Health department officials later clarified that the rules won’t apply to abortions or miscarriages that happen at home, the Texas Tribune reported, and that no birth or death certificates will have to be issued. The regulations apply to hospitals, abortion clinics, and other health care facilities, but not individual women. "
So the newest trick is to force abortion providers to charge thousands of dollars to cover the cost cremation and or burial. My god can they get any stupider? Of course they can it's Texas!
That is absolutely ridiculous! Just plain nonsense! You made that up
Well, yes and no.
I'm not on the organ donor / cadaver donor lists for a reason. None of my surgeon friends are on it, and they don't recommend it either. Because sometimes, when you're on the table and a surgeon sees you're on the list... oops... we just couldn't save that one. But fortunately, he'll be used as spare parts for all these other people! Good News!
Or at least those are the kind of horror stories I've heard from my more well-traveled surgeon friends...
. There is no way this happens. The truth is actually the reverse. You have to specifically ask the doctor to stop trying, you have to state in writing that you don't want any more medical intervention.
My sister died almost exactly 1 year ago after a 4 year struggle with stage IV kidney cancer. Towards the end, even though she had already inacted her DNR, I had to tell the doctor to stop acting like there is hope. She couldn't walk, couldn't feed herself, couldn't bath or dress herself and yet I had to call in hospice to get the doc to stop. She was an organ donor, but the cancer disallowed that. She donated her body to science, as did my brother who died 5 years ago from ALS.
- Your statement is wrong, foolish and actually very harmful.
Harmful to people like me who have walked beside the body bag as the hearse from the medical board comes to pick them up. Harmful to people who might be considering a final gift to others via organ or body donation.
I hope very much you walk back what you said, if so I'll gladly delete this post.
