“Dead Man” Feels “Pretty Good”


When dead is not really dead. We really need to think this through better.

“I remember a little bit that was about an hour before the accident happened. But then about six hours before that, I remember,” he said.

Dunlap said one thing he does remember is hearing the doctors pronounce him dead.

“I’m glad I couldn’t get up and do what I wanted to do,” he said.

Not enough is taught on this subject to dispel the myths of organ donation.

    This man needs to speak out!! Imagine how many people have had organs harvested who may have ‘snapped’ out of it as this man did.

    Isn’t it true that they harvest some of these major organs (hearts and livers) while the person is still ‘alive’? I hope I am never tempted here … I cannot imagine having a child, say, who needs a liver transplant and then allowing them to die when there’s a ‘liver’ available somewhere. I’m afraid I would choose the morally incorrect option out of total desperation. It would be best were that option not available … then the guilt would be eliminated.
