Spero News reports that Jahi McMath who was rescued by her loving parents, lawyers, and her community’s protests from the declaration of ‘Brain Death,’ is showing signs of life after months.
Following her surgery she has become quite an embarrassment for medical science as well as a financial liability for Children’s hospital and the organ donation transplant industry. She is, hourly, daily, showing the world that she is not brain dead. She is not dead, period, as the hospital declared that she was.
She is the evidence that a brain death definition is merely a tool of a fast growing industry that is aggressively attempting to fulfill the requests for healthy organs for transplants.
Human organs to be successfully transplanted into another human being must be fresh which means removed from a body that is still alive, is still functioning. Organs from a dead body, a cadaver, are of no life preserving value to another living human being.
Therefore, creating a definition of brain death that allows medicine to declare that a patient is dead provides for that allowance.
