Your comment makes no sense... those who are considered brain dead are put on life support to keep their organs alive while the procurement agency looks for recipients who match. Sometimes a body will remain "alive"- with support- for a day or two even though brain activity has ceased. I worked in a trauma ICU for several years and participated in several harvestings (yes, that's what it's called). And while there is no doubt that there are corrupt organizations and "unethical and immoral doctors" around the country, it is both ignorant and stupid and corral all physicians and hospitals under one umbrella. Idiot.
