I hope I'm correct in assuming that those who claim that 'any parent would do the same for their kids' are only referring to merely accepting an organ that happened to be obtained by shady means, rather than condoning the actual murders.
Thousands of people, make this choice, everyday. Not necessarily under the same circumstances, but there are adults killing other people's children to save the lives of their own, on nearly every continent on the planet. It's really not such a large jump to make.
I think it is immoral to a degree, but I also question the morality of someone unwilling to kill to protect their own family, however, I would argue that on entirly different grounds. Preferably one that doesn't involve turning children into portable organ containers.
As if you wouldn't do it to save your own child!
Agreed. Anybody who says they wouldn't is either a liar or has too many morals. Yes, there is such a thing as having too many morals. Hell, I'd even do it to save an immediate family member.
Like it or not our species evolved to look out for family members first, not strangers. Sometimes nasty and unethical things have to be done to help those we love.
jesus i have just been reading about this HUMAN MEAT IN MACDONALDS bumping for later
Attention please, just inspect the evidence of criminal prosecutions: JEWISH RABBIS ARE AT THE HEART OF THIS WORLDWIDE!!! No, this is not an anti-Semitic rant.
Look up the stories and see and hear the evidence for yourself. I understand it is uncomfortable. Put your emotions on a shelf for a moment and just face the evidence. Here it is:
GOOGLE "Rabbi Organ Trafficking" --> hundreds of stories of Rabbis being prosecuted for organ trafficking!
And here's why: They consider themselves "God's chosen people" and justify treating non-Jews as cattle. Don't take my word for it... Listen to THIS RABBI explain it for you. They really believe this!
Interview with a Rabbi Abe Finkelstein:
That's why I don't "check the box" to be a donor. Some of those doctors... geez.
I believe if you are selfish enough to let good organs rot in the ground when you die you shouldn't be able to receive organs of you ever needed them. Pointing out the extreme anomalies and using that as an excuse not to donate is just dumb.
