In a decision hailed by liberals as ‘groundbreaking,’ Korman ruled the controversial ‘Morning After Pill’ will be made available over the counter to 17-year-olds and above, without parental knowledge or consent.
The move, cited as dangerous by several women’s organizations including Concerned Women for America, is coming under fire as too broad an approach. Why, for instance, are prescriptions required for ‘birth control pills,’ but not for the morning after pill?

Teens want tainted convictions tossed
By jailing kids for minor crimes — many of them appeared in their courtrooms without attorneys to represent them, two Pennsylvania judges took kickbacks from jails for keeping headcounts in the facilities up. Pennsylvania is reeling with the magnitude of the scandal: but is it all that unusual? Most animal kennels are operated the same way, using lax laws to encourage random breeding, keeping head counts in these facilities up — along with the vast sums to support them.
When Gregory Jacobs was injured in a skiboarding accident, his parents were told he would not recover…
When Gregory Jacobs was injured ski-boarding, his parents were told his situation was hopeless and he would not recover. Hospital staff encouraged the donation of his organs to assist others, for whom — they said — there was hope.
But after Gregory passed, his family learned that he wasn’t declared brain dead until 29 minutes into the procedure in which his organs were being removed for transplant.
Why was Gregory alive as his organs were being removed? Surprisingly, this encounter — which is happening daily throughout the United States — is not at all an isolated incident.
Current rules and regulations allow virtually all powers of determining prognosis for patients such as Gregory Jacobs be handed to the very physicians treating them, virtually without oversight.
Many families have discovered, too late, that the likelihood that their family member was essentially killed during the organ harvesting session and not, as they were told, sure to die of ‘natural causes following significant injury, or as the direct result of their injuries.’
In Gregory’s case, his parents obtained documentation following a coroner’s questioning of the timeframe’s involved. The coroner contacted and the hospital staff quickly ‘adjusted’ the time of death to correspond to the legal requirements. However, it is typically not questioned that death actually occurs on the operating room table as the ‘victim’ is being relieved of his organs.
A website known as LIFEGUARDIANFOUNDATION.ORG has been addressing this issue for some time, charging that if people understood what is happening, they would never be taken in by unethical people in hospitals, feigning concern while encouraging organ donation.
In interviews with the organizers of The Life Guardian Foundation, which has many documented cases on their website and offers concise pdfs outlining the issue, there is little doubt of the accuracy of their claims, and the Catholic church has also established an adverse position in the matter citing evidence that the very process of obtaining of organs is fraught with legal inconsistencies and assessments for which there can be no physical proof.
It is little help, however, for those for whom the question is only raised following the tragic injury of a loved one. These decisions are often pressed upon a person who is faced with trying to comprehend what s happening while still in the throes of shock.
Many victims’ families have indicated they were separated from each other once hospital officials determined the likeliest candidate to sign the required documents. One mother described a grueling incident in which she was separated from her husband who ultimately gave permission for the harvesting of organs from their son, the victim of a small handgun shooting that happened in their home. The boy was conscious and able to talk in the ambulance as he left their home.
Once in the care of physicians, however, the family was told his case, too, was essentially hopeless. Only later did the his parents recognize their son’s injuries should not have resulted in death.
How much is a human life worth in the world of transplants? Remember, most patients are used to acquire at least three of these types of donations:
Please note that these figures do not include the requirements for securing the organs, nor do they include the cost of helicopter transport, the common means of transportation for organs intended for donation.
Double Lung: $550,000
Bone Marrow (autologous): $270,000
Bone Marrow (allogeneic related): $480,000
Bone Marrow (allogeneic unrelated): $600,000
Note: Some families have reported discovering strange items on the bodies to disguise the ravages of taking all useable organs, leaving little to bury — prompting many to investigate further the circumstances behind the death. STORY HERE
Critics of the methods used in obtaining organs for transplant have charged that when the word DONOR appears on a person’s personal documents, they are treated differently than those who have not chosen to be a donor, even including the withholding of resuscitation efforts.
Once in a hospital and designated for transplantation, the hospital staff will go to great lengths to ensure the ‘patient’ isn’t reevaluated or moved and, commonly, any questions raised on by family members — or suggestion that they move the patient to another hospital will be met with the announcement that the patient would undoubtedly die enroute to the new facility.
