He Wasn't Really Brain Dead

Zack Dunlop was declared brain dead, for the sole purpose of harvesting his organs. Thank God for his cousins, acting on a hunch he was still with us.

The young man himself told NBC that he heard the doctors pronounce him brain dead, and said, "I'm glad I couldn't get up and do what I wanted to do." When asked what he wanted to do, he responded, "There probably would have been a broken window they went out."

Maybe Zack should act on that instinct, and do what he intended. It may save the lives of others, and prevent these "doctors" from killing people just to steal their organs.

This is a case where I believe this young man should sue. They (the "doctors") should pay substantially, not just monetarily, but wih the loss of their licenses to practice medicine.
