    Proposal: All New Yorkers Become Organ Donors

    Is this a move by to make the final most personal of all intrusions, right into one's own body parts? Just because other countries do it.

    Proposal: All New Yorkers Become Organ Donors - wcbstv.com

    Even with the 'opt out' clause what do you all think? Are we next?

    I have heard others say, if your in a serious accident and someone nearby needs a body part or two, could YOU be harvested for it? I have very mixed feelings with this issue.

    I would make a slight amendment that you can will your dead body and the recipients can sell your organs.

    Well, the dead vote goes 99.999% to Dems in every election, still it's upsetting that Brodsky feels the need to pander to his base.

    And for the betterment of the collective average IQ of the nation, we could 'donate' Bfgrn for vivisection

    Gee Dave, the fact that I am at least 100 times smarter than you doesn't mean I should be forced to have a lobotomy just to cut that advantage in half.

    Those who are willing to donate their organs should get a discount on their health insurance because they are providing a valuable resource to the health industry.

    If you don't want to donate your organs but are still willingto accept a donation from someone else...you should pay more

    This is not right. It's outrageous. It's enough that there's already all kinds of black market organ"donation" is going on. Seems like this could open all kinds of loopholes for unscrupulous people to become even more so.

    Not to mention that people should have control over their own bodies. Hell, women have had that right to choose for years with the abortion laws. If a woman has the right to choose what to do with her body then everybody else should have the right to choose whether to donate any of their body parts.

    This Brodsky guy is a real piece of work. Glad I don't live in NY anymore.

    So the government has shifted from residing mainly in our wallets literally getting a boot in our asses. This is fuxxing ridiculous and it is fallout of Liberalism from the past decade of unbelievably increasing default levels of government rule. The bill is essentially saying:

    "By default the government owns your body."

    That philosophy is how America has operated for a long time. There are no homeowners in America. We all pay rent to the government and, just like our bodies, they are saying to obey or be confiscated like everything else we falsely believe we own.

    If an insurance company wanted to offer that... good for them...

    But not any government mandate standard on such a price action
