Uh Oh!

Organ donors take note of Obama health care. The accompanying flowchart first appeared at M.E. back in October 26, 2008.

For a larger version click on and open the chart in a new tab.

In the first column of the chart is an alternative imagined for organ donors, whom we originally speculated:

When your organs become available earlier than necessary due to bureaucratic delays or surgical wait listing, your survivors will have little doubt who the favored recipients of available organs will be. First in line are the U.S.Congress, their relatives, select constituents, and esteemed federal employees.

Now, guess what? We apparently underestimated how aggressive the Obama administration would be as regards compulsory organ donations. From the beltway comes the prospect that families will be pressured to donate all available organs before their loved one has died, even if the patient expressly did not authorize nor wish to donate any organ.

Obama's "regulatory czar", Cass Sunstein, has pushed strongly for the removal of organs from those who did not give their consent to becoming an organ donor. And Tuesday the American Medical Association completed a four-day meeting in which physician delegates set policies and took a position on organ donations for HIV-positive individuals.

Why would that come up? In the run-up to a tight election, the latest Obama favored class has been exposed. According to the Center for Disease Control, you see, in the United States the AIDS Rate 50 Times Higher in Homosexual Men. Not to pick one favorites category alone, it is only fair to disclose the obvious:

First in line for your organs are the U.S.Congress, their relatives, select constituents (Solyndra, union officials, etc.), and certain federal employees. Left leaning associate justices appointed to the Supreme Court for life (e.g. Elena Kagan) will take precedence over conservatives (e.g. Clarence Thomas) in eligibility for lifetime extensions.

Finally, bureaucrats in line for healthcare decisions implicit in the above paragraph will have priorities obtained for their compliance accordingly.

Socialism is merely favoritism in disguise.

Submarines are always silent and strange.

Welcome to the world of socialized medicine.
