Many patients declared "brain-dead" have later spontaneously revived and lived. See Zach Dunlap, a 21 year old Oklahoma man, was "feeling pretty good" 4 months after diagnosis as "brain dead". He later revived only moments before surgery. Steven Thorpe, 17 year old Warwickshire youth, was declared "brain dead" in 2008, but made an unexpected recovery. Rae Kupferschmidt, 65 year old Minnesota woman, suffered massive cerebral haemorrhage in 2008, was diagnosed as "brain dead" but later revived. Gloria Cruz, 56 year old Northern Territory woman, was declared "brain dead" in 2011, only to revive 3 days later. Survivor cases prove "brain death" is medical fallacy, invented to allow organ removal from living patients.

He was about to share that bad news with her, when he got news that I was talking. He now refers to me as a "miracle." I hadn't thought of the possibility of having been vivisected. Thank you, God, for healing me in a timely manner.

According to The New York Post, which broke the story, McMahon says that last September a 19-year-old man injured in a car crash was sent to the Nassau University Medical Center. The young patient was still laboring to breathe and had other signs of brain activity. But Michael Goldstein, director of the federally funded New York Organ...
