The parents of an 18-year-old Ohio man who suffered a brain injury while snowboarding claim in a lawsuit that doctors at a northwestern Pennsylvania hospital intentionally killed him so they could harvest his organs.

maybe i should leave my organs to my family in my will, so that if someone is going to sell them, at least my family profits off of it, instead of some douchebag doctor.
If i ever found out that someone had intentionally let my wife or child die so that they could harvest their organs for profit, all i can say is the doc better thank god we're in a hospital, so he won't have to go far for medical care.
i'll even make sure not to harm his organs, so maybe one of his fellow doctors can finish him off for me and harvest his organs for a profit. that would suffice as justice to me.

Would not surprise me if some doctors would do this. The logic is not even that crazy. save a guy's life whose best case scenario is pretty bleak, or let him die and take his organs and use them to save a several people's lives. Heart, liver, lungs, kidney's, those alone save 5 people's lives, plus all the cash that gets raked in for the expensive surgery's.
I guess it just depends on how easy it is to get away with letting people die on purpose. The fear of getting caught would probably deter most doctors who would think about this from actually doing it.
