I would not ask my children for a kidney, I would go to dialyses like that evil man Osama Bin Laden, and I would hope for a transplant. But fortunately I am blessed with good genes and have no health problems in my family. Maybe it is the blessing of living a good life and respecting the rights of others, who knows? But if my parents needed a kidney, I do not think that my parents would put their needs ahead of the needs of their children. I think it is a barbaric custom to put the desires of the parents ahead of the needs or even the lives of their children. But not all cultures see things this way. They see their children as they see their wives like property and cattle. That is why some cultures will do honor murders of their children, or sell them into slavery, or force them to marry someone they do not love, or raise them to be terrorists. It is all about the parents and their backward supertstitions in these cultures. I would call them evil cultures. Would you demand your child give you a kidney?
