Not content with raising taxes on yo8ur income and taxing your health,  the Obama administration want your body parts as well,  from James Taranto, Best of the Web

“Cass Sunstein, President Barack Obama’s nominee to head the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), has advocated a policy under which the government would ‘presume’ someone has consented to having his or her organs removed for transplantation into someone else when they die unless that person has explicitly indicated that his or her organs should not be taken. Under such a policy, hospitals would harvest organs from people who never gave permission for this to be done.”–, Sept. 4

I have nothiing against voluntary organ donation.   However I am opposed to the state presuming the consent of the individual.   It was such a presumption on the part of one corrupt judge, that Terri Schiavo ended up dead.    The judge simply presumed  Mrs. Schiavo wanted to die.   How long would it take for the Obama death panels to presume that unconscious patients simply wished to die?

From our Declaration of Indepence:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. –That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it

Our inalienable rights would include the right to dispose of our own body parts as we alone see fit.   Liberty, what a concept.
