Life and Death Can Not Exist In The Same Person At the Same Time

Life and death can not exist in the same person at the same time…or Can They? 

Jamie alive Can a person be both alive and dead at the same time?

According to the government and hospitals all across America the answer is YES. However, this belief did not come about until 45 years ago with the introduction of “brain death.”

Biologically speaking, our bodies are made of cells, tissues, and organs including three major vital systems. No one organ or system controls all other organs and systems. Interdependent functioning of organs and systems maintains unity, homeostasis, immune defenses, growth, healing and the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide.

When a person is on a ventilator all the signs of life are present, including temperature, pulse, blood pressure, and respiration. When a person dies, the signs of death are present including the lack of breathing, heartbeat, pulse and blood pressure.

A person’s brain may be severally injured, they are in a deep coma but they are not dead.

Life Support

We were together as a family when Jamie was taken off the ventilator. The signs of life one minute and the signs of death 14 minutes later. It was obvious… one minute he was there and the next minute he was gone from this earth.

We had no choice but to remove him from life support, we were told “no hospital in the U.S would take him in that condition.” As a family together we decided we were not going to allow Jamie to die in a cold,sterile operating room with his organs being cut out while he was alive.

The fact of the matter is if you are biologically dead, your organ’s can not be used. The organs must be vital…or alive. Within 4 minutes and some say sooner after your heart has stopped, blood flow through the heart to the all the vital organs makes them unusable.

God created a person with a body and a soul.

You are not dead until the soul leaves the body, that is true death.

Gen 2:7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Two parts 1) the physical=body and 2) the soul from the breath of God.

Dr. Michael Devita, Professor, Critical Care Medicine and Internal Medicine University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine,who has done a lot of research on the non heart beating donor, said that transplant donors are “pretty dead” before their organs are extracted.

“Pretty dead” was not ok with us, is it ok for you?

Have something to add?

  1. Thanks for sharing this Melissa. I’m an organ donor and am going to look into this.

  2. Wow. I will definitely be doing that. I can’t believe that they keep you on the registries. That’s awful! There’s another thing they never tell you.

  3. I’ve had 4 driver’s licenses in my life. Vermont, Georgia, Tennessee, and now Georgia again. I always checked the little box that asked if I wanted to be an organ donor, except for this last time. Following Jamie’s accident, I’ve been following your posts and doing my own research and I’ve decided that my license will never again state that I am willing to be an organ donor. What boggles my mind is that they ask you this when you get your license at 18. They offer no information regarding it. You’re asked to make a medical decision in a DMV? Really? Since doing all that research, I’ve asked my doctors about organ donation and none of them have ever mentioned the fact that you’re still alive. They’re like vultures.

    • Sarah, I have to tell you that just saying “no” once you have said “yes” is not enough. You are still on the registries. They will check everywhere you have lived to try and get them,via checking current and past licenses. (Should you God forbid ever be in an accident.) What you did is called rescission, meaning you made a mistake or didn’t understand. Revocation is where you REVOKE the right to have your organs taken. Go to LifeGuardianFoundation.org and get the form.

      Document your decision of “refusal” for organ donation, make known your wishes to have your life protected and preserved and ensure, that in the event that you cannot speak for yourself, your family and loved ones will speak on your behalf. It is a matter of life and death. I’m posting the document in the book by permission.
