Life Guardian Foundation

lifeguardianfoundation.org

Even my storngly pro-life family was largely unaware of the Life Guardian Foundation and its positions until last year. They have convinced me to decline organ donor status on my driver's license and seek physicians recommended by the Catholic Medical Association. Other pro-life groups have expressed similar concerns about living wills and certain vaccines. I would be interested in hearing the results of any research by other CatholicMatch members on these topics.

I wonder if this is true in every state regarding driver licenses?

For the most part it is an opt-in system, or is supposed to be. I removed my designation after hearing Dr. Paul Byrne years ago in Ohio.

There was some talk about making it an opt-out in New York. There you would be automatically presumed to be an organ donor unless you directly said you didn't want to be.

The reference Jim gave suggests that doctors and hospitals do what they want.

I removed my designation after hearing Dr. Paul Byrne speak in Pennsylvania in 2011. I showed some of the Life Guardian materials to my parents and they briefly debated the issue. As far as I know, the rest of my family still has the organ donor designation.

Sadly, they are often doing just that.

I don't know...if we are that bad that they don't know whether we are dead or not, does it matter if they pull the plug at this point? I'm an organ donor so just asking.

I am not a medical professional or expert. All I can suggest is that you study the information, inform your closest relatives and make informed decisions.

With all of the immorality in the world today, blind faith in doctors and hospitals seems pretty foolish to me.
