Organ donations

We woke up this morning learning about the new German law for organ donations. It seems to be controversial, although it tried to improve the current situation.

In Mexico, it's necessary that not only you, but also your relatives are ok with the donation. But, as it happens, when the family is dealing with the death and arranging the funerals, it is hard to think about donating the organs.

This is a new film, released yesterday, about a mother who decided to unplugged her brain dead daughter and to donate her heart to a sixty year old man. This was the first succesful heart transplantation.

(In this role, Lisa Sheridan, is just breath taking... no earring has pierced her ears...)
