Are You Sick of Brain Death?
Are you sick of the brain death controversy? You're not alone. For a variety of reasons, many people just don't want to hear any more about it. Many of the leading poskim and medical experts already spent a lot of time on this issue many years ago and they are burned out from it. Other people are at the opposite end of the spectrum - they've never gotten into the topic, believe it to be too late to become knowledgeable about it, and are just waiting for it to blow over.
I only have a few posts left on this topic, but they are important. Aside from the fact that this is very much a matter of life and death, I have come to realize that it is a pivotal topic for rationalist Judaism. So, interspersed with other topics that I will be writing about, there will be some very important posts about the relationship between the topic of brain death and other aspects of Jewish thought.
