More bodily autonomy for corpses than pregnant women...
You are comparing a living foetus in the womb which has the potential to become a member of the human race with a kidney which may not in any case be of any use to anybody?

The bodily autonomy applies when the person is still alive, they get to choose what happens to their body when they die, same as they get to decide how their funeral is handled.

If a person wants to be buried intact without being opened up for organ harvesting after they die then that choice should be respected.

Spot on. Matlock and her girl power gang are the biggest hypocrites ever. They "care" about human life apparently 🤣

It absolutely should. But don’t pretend to be “pro life” if you choose not to donate.

You’re not. If you were truly pro life you would donate.

Her choice is being respected. No one is suggesting that the choice should be removed from her.

It's a selfish choice though and she doesnt have the right to not have that pointed out.

The two things aren't even comparable. I say do whatever you want to yourself and yourself alone.

Of course they are.

You are choosing not to give others chance at life. All because you don't get your pick who gets the organs, bizarrely enough.

Pro life for a clump of cells.

Won’t help an actual born human to stay alive.


Call themselves pro life.

Just checking RR, if you had heart failure right now and someone in hospital with you was dying and had a perfect heart but they choose to be buried with their heart rather than saving your life with donation.

You're telling me you wouldn't consider that person selfish??

Bullshit you wouldn't.

If a person lives to a ripe old age then what use are their organs to anybody else? you are assuming that everybody who dies will leave behind organs that can be harvested, I very much doubt that is the case, it's different if a young and healthy person dies suddenly, of course their organs could save lives.

You're assuming that the heart of the dying person will be suitable for the person with heart failure, I very much doubt it's as straight forward as that, the heart might not be a match, in fact it might not be a match for anyone currently on the heart transplant list in Ireland.
