Great thread. I've known about this for a long time but have never seen the figures. I contemplated on who was getting rich by this about ten years ago and removed my organ donor from my license. S&F

The fact is that the anti-rejection drugs cost a lot after the surgeries also. It is much better to study prevention of these problems than to fix them after things go wrong. Remember that all our insurance premiums are more expensive from this.

Id give you more than one star for that post if i could. And id like to see a source for the, and i paraphrase. "body not nessarily dead when the harvesting begins" claim. That is fearmongering without any proof.
Il tell you what happened to me, well my mum actually, i was only twenty four when my mum died of a brain haemorrage at the age of 51. I spent three days by her bed waiting for her to wake up, but nothing. By the fourth day, it was time for the doctors to perform tests to see if her brain was dead, it was explained to me that these were completely conclusive, and sadly it turned out that mum was brain dead. Five minutes after being told this, a doctor asked me if i would be willing for her organs to be donated, I felt BAD FOR THEM that they had to ask so soon after the bad news, but theres no hanging around. I knew my mum would have wanted it, so i said take anything apart from her eyes,(silly i know).
They told me the exact time the operation would happen, and the approximate time my mother would "die". I dont have any regrets and would do it again, (and be one myself oneday). Four people are alive, including a baby because of my mam.

- A long time ago I had heard a rumor that the University of Michigan would pay you ALOT of Money (somewhere around $10K the story went) to donate your body to them after you died. Supposedly you would get some sort of tattoo on you and then they paid you by check with the knowledge you will be used in their medical program when you die.

This was all back in the late 1980s when I heard this.

When my Wife and I got married I brought it up and we decided to check into it since we could have used the $20K (for both of us) to put a very nice downpayment on a home. I called U of M and learned that this was actually true in a sense but they didnt do it anymore.

-But yes, at some time not long ago you could "sell" your living Body to U of M for a nice chunk of Money (it wasnt 10K either...And no Tattoo I dont think)

I would do this in a heartbeat. Hell, I would trade my future dead body for a gas card right now- Any takers?

Interesting thread. We all technically have a net worth of over a million now, dont we? =p

I checked 'no' to being a donor when I got my drivers license just because I thought it was weird they asked.

Ive always believed being buried in a coffin in a hole in the ground was such a waste of land, molecules, and water. I would prefer to have my body's atoms returned directly to the Earth aka become compost. Or, back to where my atoms originated... a star or our Sun.

"Graphic detail" would imply you'd be describing something you'd SEEN, not just heard about from someone.

Is this post serious?
If so, probably not the place to put it. English-speaking conspiracy site, not likely full of people looking for what you're talking about, here.

Organ donation turns out the same way most things do in the end, the guy with the big bucks gets the organs of the poor dead person who is un / underinsured and allowed to die, and the last thing ever done is guilt tripping the one who dies, or their relatives into donating the parts, if they even get permission. Only the dead person knows for sure I guess, and of course those who harvested the parts.

Illegal body parts are harvested regularly, it can be assumed to be so because of the gargantuan amounts of money to be made from it. I don't like using the term "assumed", but who exactly is keeping track?, is it in their best interest to keep track, or enjoy the benefit ($$$$) of looking the other way?.

The doctors get a notch on their stick because they supposedly save people's live because they do transplants, and they be great big heroes, but heroes don't get compensated for being heroes. If you do something to get rich you're nothing but an opportunist, not a hero. Don't even bring up the cost of education, a lot of poor people don't get into medical school just because they're poor....

....The pharmaceuticals industry makes big bucks on anti-rejection drugs for the rest of that person's life who received the transplant, and the insurance companies makes sure that if you are not rich to begin with, you'll be bankrupt and be forced to live off of social services, or just allowed to die.

And I can already foresee the next comment to my statements here "That's Negative" "Wow!, what a downer!". Well.... The world isn't all fuzzy kittens and flowers and butterflies fluttering and bright sunshine. A lot of people who commit the most vile acts disguise themselves as heroes and such, when in reality they are the lowest of the low life who take advantage of anyone they can, any way they can. And the dead have NO RIGHTS, and it is not really in anyone's best interest to keep track when it is only dead people who are being harvested.

Nobody gets saved if there isn't some profit or benefit in it for someone else, at least not very often. And worse still is that a lot of people who would do it out of sheer kindness and selflessness are not allowed to because it isn't lawful for them to do so.

Nobody ever gets saved anyway, they are just exploited right up till the time the funeral is over, then it's finally done.....Till enough of the relatives pass on to build houses on the cemetery without them having to explain it.
