TEL AVIV – President Obama’s newly confirmed regulatory czar defended the possibility of removing organs from terminally ill patients without their permission.

Cass Sunstein also has strongly pushed for the removal of organs from deceased individuals who did not explicitly consent to becoming organ donors
In his 2008 book, “Nudge: Improving Decisions about Health, Wealth and Happiness,” Sunstein and co-author Richard Thaler discussed multiple legal scenarios regarding organ donation. One possibility presented in the book, termed by Sunstein as “routine removal,” posits that “the state owns the rights to body parts of people who are dead or in certain hopeless conditions, and it can remove their organs without asking anyone’s permission.”

“Though it may sound grotesque, routine removal is not impossible to defend,” wrote Sunstein. “In theory, it would save lives, and it would do so without intruding on anyone who has any prospect for life.”

    I could not be more serious!!!!! This is great science. I do however notice that neo-cons are against every single Obama policy or thought of an Obama administration official. I would hope that instead of being against everything maybe….just maybe y’all should come up with solutions to the problems y’all created!!!!!! Or y’all could sit down and shut up and let our GENIUS NUBIAN KING lead us out of the neo-con quagmire!!!
