The following comes from an Oct. 5 story by Camille Giglio on Spero Forum.
Jahi McMath, a 13 year old Oakland, California, resident, who was declared brain dead following tonsillectomy surgery, late last year by Oakland Children’s hospital brain death experts, is alive and always was alive, according to her mother, Naileh Winkfield and their spokesperson, San Francisco attorney, Christopher Dolan.
Jahi has once again become front page news because her attorney is petitioning the courts to rescind the death certificate issued by the Oakland Coroner’s office as a condition for allowing her to be released into her mother’s care from the hospital.
Jahi left Oakland Children’s hospital (now referred to as Benioff Children’s Hospital) in the dark of night, by ambulance on January 3, 2014, under heavily guarded care to an undisclosed facility.
Jahi was, merely hours before her surgery, just an ordinary 13-year-old girl with sleep apnea problems who was going into the hospital for a minor procedure which would require her to be in the hospital, at most, for 24 hours.
Following her surgery she has become quite an embarrassment for medical science as well as a financial liability for Children’s hospital and the organ donation transplant industry. She is, hourly, daily, showing the world that she is not brain dead. She is not dead, period, as the hospital declared that she was.
She is the evidence that a brain death definition is merely a tool of a fast growing industry that is aggressively attempting to fulfill the requests for healthy organs for transplants.
Human organs to be successfully transplanted into another human being must be fresh which means removed from a body that is still alive, is still functioning. Organs from a dead body, a cadaver, are of no life preserving value to another living human being….
Jahi shows every indication of being an integrative, functioning human being. Her body has not disintegrated, the attorney has provided videos showing her moving her feet and hands on command, her body is processing nutrients, she has begun menstrual periods. Jahi has healed from her tonsilectomy surgery. No dead body has the capability of healing itself.
If there is any miracle involved, said Byrne, it is the fact that Jahi’s mother has been successful in keeping the organ donation industry away from her daughter….
With the passage in California this term of certain health care-End-of-Life legislation expanding the ability of assisted suicide promoting groups to access vulnerable disabled and elderly citizens, there will be a huge promotion of suicide assisting activities. California is already “covered” with tv and newspaper advertisements about how wonderful palliative care is and how we certainly don’t want our loved ones to suffer the pain or discomfort of a terminal illness or the family to be discomforted by a prolonged death of a family member.
Governor Brown has also signed a driver’s license bill that will allow certain certified agencies at the scene of accidents to swipe driver’s licenses for evidence that they are organ donors. There is even a very genuine possibility that the absence of a designation will be considered as a designation for being an organ donor….
