Kidney Donation Denied For Cult Member
A 22 year-old Australian man was denied his request to donate a kidney while in Canada last weekend after concerns were raised that the donation may be a rite of passage to gain membership into a religious cult.
Danielle Godard at AHN News Writer in Toronto wrote this:
Reports claim Falkingham's parents pleaded with the hospital to send their son away, claiming he had been brainwashed by a religious group called Jesus Christians, and the hospital agreed to postpone the operation.
Jesus Christians claim donating a kidney to a stranger is the very ultimate test of a person's faith in God.
The intended recipient, Canadian Sandi Sabloff, said on the ABC program that she found Falkingham through a website called Living Donors Online, where they exchanged correspondence for several months before meeting in Toronto.
Yep... if you are going to tell your donors that you think they are in a cult... by rule I think you need to refuse the donation.
Isn't the kidney of a cult member just as good as the kidney from you or me?
