Just Because Israel and Other Countries Do It Doesn't Mean We Should, Too
It's not that I want to call politicians names, it's that I have to. Behold the latest example of an utter moron, State Assemblyman Richard Brodsky, and his brilliant legislative effort to move us one step closer to a totalitarian society:
New York State Assemblyman Richard Brodsky nearly lost his daughter, Willie, at 4 years old when she needed a kidney transplant, and again 10 years later when her second kidney failed.
"We have 10,000 New Yorkers on the list today waiting for organs. We import half the organs we transplant. It is an unacceptable failed system," Brodsky said.
To fix that, Brodsky introduced a new bill in Albany that would enroll all New Yorkers as an organ donor, unless they actually opt out of organ donation. It would be the first law of its kind in the United States.
"Overseas, 24 nations have it. Israel has it. Others have it. And it works without a lot of controversy," Brodsky said.
