"Presume consent" means that unless you specifically tell the hospital that you DON'T want your organs harvested, they take 'em. And since the hospital employs the people who declare you dead, they decide when to take 'em too.
New Democrat member Peter Kormos introduced a private member's bill Thursday that would presume consent for organ donations from any dying patient who hasn't already made their wishes clear.
It would reverse the current system, which requires people to sign a donor card and obtain the consent of family before any organs or tissue can be harvested.
Canadians have no right to property, as I've been at some pains to point out over the years. What's yours is only yours so long as there's no law saying otherwise, and such a law is no farther away than three readings in the House and Crown consent. They could blow that off in an afternoon if there was a hurry on it. Taxes, expropriations, you name it, they can do it.
The NDP has decided that having the power to take all your money and posessions is not enough. They want your ASS. And your liver, heart, kidneys, lungs, corneas, skin, blood and guts too. In a good cause, of course. Almost makes you want to take up smoking and liquor, just to fuck them up.
This never knowing when enough is enough is what makes the NDP dangerous. I look forward to voting against them in every election from now until they part out my still-warm corpse.
The Phantom of many parts.
