Good points made in this article, Americans are worried more about having health care than getting an organ. The concept is good in theory, but how it is handled with regard to human morality and the preservation of dignity will remain to be seen.  Even though successful in Spain, the implementation here will make all the difference.  As citizens, so much has been compromised of late, so it’s no wonder there are skeptics on how this will all fall in to place.  BD 

An ambulance rushes to the scene of an accident and the paramedics prepare to assist the victim. Behind them another ambulance rolls up, its paramedics ready to intervene if the patient dies. Their task: get the still-warm body ready to remove organs that could save another person's life. This system has been successfully in place in Spain for 19 years, but New Yorkers are uneasy over at plans to launch a similar scheme in the city with a fleet of ambulances to help harvest fresh human organs. About 18 people die each day in the United States due to a lack of available organs for transplant, according to Donate Life America (DLA), a non-profit group that encourages the public to donate organs.
