    ^ This is true... You don't want to wake up in a bathtub full of ice and a mobile phone beside you with a sign reading "call for help - you don't have your kidney anymore".

    I'm terribly sorry to hear that.

    It would be great for her to get the lungs obviously and I pray that she does. I just hope someone does not take them to give to some 80 year old senator or oil tycoon instead. My main point is where is the check and balance for this type of thing and who knows if money changes hands behind the scenes to make sure certain people get priority?

    One would be naive to assume this isnt the case. If a multi-billionare needs a kidney and so do you, and there is only one on the market; guess whos gonna get it?

    This is what makes me apprehensive of traveling to Mexico or any country other than Canada or those in Europe.

    That's what I'm saying, and this is why I don't want to give my body parts away. At the same time, I can see how it hurts those who really need it.

    I wish we could specify who the body parts would go to.

    There is a special list for organs and people are on those lists. But I bet you that list is shady as $#@!, rich people mysteriously 'move up' the list if you know what I mean.

    Yep, I know what you mean. If that doesn't work, I'm sure they source it from someone who "borrowed" it from an unfortunate tourist is some unfortunate country.

    The most $#@!ed up part about this. It shows true human nature, look out for your own ass.

    Imagine (god forbid) needing an organ and a rare one at that. An organ that requires the donar to be dead and organ quickly preserved. You would practically be praying for someone to die, wouldnt you?

    $#@!ed up we are.

    Well, I don't know if you would be praying for someone to die but people die everyday. The idea is to at least have that death provide for life for someone else. In theory, it is noble.

    It's noble in theory, taking fresh organs from an already dead person and giving it to a person in need. Thats not what I mean though, I mean you are practically wishing for an accident to happen so you can get that organ. You are hooked up to a machine and need the organ, you are practically waiting for an accident to happen.
