It is the height of authoritarian arrogance — the state of New York wants to take the organs of its citizens without permission.
New York State Assemblyman Richard Brodsky has introduced a bill that would automatically enroll all New Yorkers as organ donors unless they specifically opt out of organ donation.
It is called “presumed consent,” doublespeak for theft. It should be called grave robbery.
Presumed consent is the same thing as a thief stealing your car and when you confront him he says, “Since you didn’t tell me I couldn’t steal your car, I presume you granted permission to steal it.”
Brodsky told Fox News he just wants to force all New Yorkers to make the decision. And if they don’t the state will presume consent and steal their organs. The disgusting part is Brodsky makes it sound like the state wants to make sure citizens retain control of their organs (see video above).
The message is crystal clear — the state owns the bodies of its subjects and they will be required to come crawling to officialdom in order to prevent the looting of their organs.
