(heartless)Health and Human Services Secretary Sebelius stated yesterday, "someone lives and someone dies", when referring to the little angel desperately needing a lung transplant due to Cystic Fibrosis.

Hey witch... oops I mean Ms. Sebelius, does this heartless statement apply to Obama's future voters? Just asking !

Ah. Another loyal FOX viewer who does not have the inclination to follow and understand complicated issues so they instead rely on edited sound bites cut off in mid-sentence to form their opinions.

I bet your feelings would have been different if Javier Acosta was first.

Memo, go out and have some fun. It's obvious you've been isolating yourself from reality.

Memo, don't go there. You have no idea what is in this poster's heart. Most Americans don't want to see children suffer, no atter what their last name may be.

I am not questioning what is in her heart. I am just questioning why she would question what was in somebody else's heart based on one half of a sentence they spoke.

How organ donations are handled probably has more ethical dilemmas than anything in life, but what the Secretary said is sadly true. There are not enough organs to go around and somebody must decide who gets it. Everybody is rooting for the two children involved, but at the same time that means there are two other people who will die because they did not receive the organs.

It is a complicated matter it would have been worthwhile to listen to the entire sentence before labeling the woman as a witch and questioning the moral values of more than half of the voting population of the country.

I know something about donating organs, as I donated my child's at the time of death. I know it's big business and not about helping. My child wasn't even cold in the ground, and the dang hospital was dunning us or the payement. We donated several viable organs, as my child was a pretty healthy teenager. We were waiting for the insurance to do their part and let us know what our part to pay would be. The hospital harangued us, yet there is no telling what it made from the transplants those harvested organs would bring in. The entire aspect of this actually sickens me...the people most needy are not always the ones who get put higher on the waiting list. I wanted my child's organs to enhance some unfortunate person's life, yet I wonder of they actually went to the people who needed them the most. I was never aloowed to know who got them. I hope that has changed in this day and age, as it would have been a great comfort to me to know my child was living on in another. The structure of this harvesting and donation process needs to be totally overhauled.

I'm so sorry about your child, Teddy. I would think that if the hospitals hound families about organ donation, you would at least allow the families decide who would get those organs. You're right this donation process needs overhauling and families should be able to take part in choosing where and who gets their family members organs. This was a very generous and love of fellow Americans gesture on your part. God Bless you and your family.

I thank you for your kind words...knowing my child lives on in others has been a comfort to me. I just hope that those organs went to those who needed them the most.

Are you an organ donor? Many do indeed have to die because there are not enough organs to go around.
