"Death is whatever you say it is"?

Here is one of the scarier news articles I’ve seen in awhile:
washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/10/03/AR2008100301974.html

A quote: “Brain death? Cardiac death? Persistent vegetative state? Death is whatever you say it is.”

Right, just as “marriage” is whatever you say it is?

Mother Mary, pray for us…

I’ve heard about this before. It has made me consider whether or not to have the organ donor check removed from my driver’s license. I really don’t want anyone but God to decide when the end of my natural life is.

Note that I haven’t made the decision yet!
