Welcome to Obama care.
Fucking idiot, you failed to post the fact he's an alcoholic. An alcoholic would have a very tough time of getting a liver transplant here NOW.
A legacy of the George Best saga.
The family is crying about how he wasn't given a chance.
He had EIGHT YEARS to change. My question is, why the fuck did the family allow him to binge drink for eight years?
What were they gonna do? Give the guy the liver so he could waste it while someone else on the list who actually deserved it dies?
how 'bout this one?

Raises the question should smokers be treated if they continue to smoke...? Smokers would probably say they've paid for their treatment via the punitive tax payable for tobacco products. If one view is reasonable, shouldn't it be so for the other as well? Taxes are high on booze as well.

If there is no one behind you who doesn't need a liver, then give one to who smokes or drinks. However, there are plenty of people out there who need one, did neither, and follow the guidelines required.

I just had that conversation with my wife and we arrived at the same conclusion.
