Next item on Obama agenda: Live patients as organ donors
Officials running a federal program that is considering redefining death are going to be seeking further public comment after members of the Christian Medical Association raised alarms about several problems, including what they believe would be an open door to pressure families to donate organs before their loved one has died.
The proposal could move the federal government closer into alignment with what has been proposed by longtime Barack Obama adviser Cass Sunstein.
Obama's "regulatory czar" was revealed in 2009 to have pushed strongly for the removal of organs from those who did not give their consent to becoming an organ donor.
It was reported that in his book, "Nudge: Improving Decisions about Health, Wealth and Happiness," Sunstein and co-author Richard Thaler presented the possibility of the "routine removal" of organs because "the state owns the rights to body parts of people who...
and legal immunity is given to the producers. (ominous that they would not want to take responsibility for their own product) this is how the statistics keep rising but no one cares to do anything about it.
In Japan after 4 passed away, the product was removed, because they cared for their children.
Here, the response to 50+ statistics was to start giving it to 12 year olds without the consent of the parents.
...Continued from previous post. When I lived in Lancaster County, I had a well traveled route between my home and that of my closet brethren. It was a scenic route and the neat and orderly Mennonite farms often had a billboard that was just a Scripture verse. 'Prepare to meet thy God' was the that which was set before my eyes repeatedly on route. Amos 4 was my normal read-thru chapter, but I fell asleep before reading it and woke to read and consider. What you said jpw made me think of what I read. We have spoken here concerning just and unjust wars. Thus my closing thought: that of all the fearful armies men can muster the unseen is the most dreadful and did cause me to: "Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure." Phil. 2:12-13 That was what I was trying to share, in case I was unclear.

That would seem as if it should be so, but in the third watch Tues. AM I was reading Amos 4 and after the sword, pestilence and famine the nation and majority of it people were not moved to repentance causing the prophet to repeat v.8b"yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD." So concluding he now says: v. 11-13 "I have overthrown some of you, as God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah, and ye were as a firebrand plucked out of the burning: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD. Therefore thus will I do unto thee, O Israel: and because I will do this unto thee, prepare to meet thy God, O Israel. For, lo, he that formeth the mountains, and createth the wind, and declareth unto man what is his thought, that maketh the morning darkness, and treadeth upon the high places of the earth, The LORD, The God of hosts, is his name." The Most fearful army to encounter, if not found accepted in the Beloved.
