I WANT MY KIDNEY BACK

I want my kidney or 1.5 million dollars. That's what Dr. Richard Batista wants from his wife whom he gave a kidney to in 2001. She's filed for divorce, he wants it back. US Man Wants Value of Kidney In Divorce Settlement.

I thought it was illegal to sell human organs. Isn't it? I mean, if it isn't then don't we run the risk of healthy patients suspiciously dying like in the thriller Coma? Personally, I had nightmares for weeks after seeing that movie.

This guy and his attorney need to be thrown out of the courthouse on their behinds.

I saw this in the news. Talk about nuts....

He wants to make money out of an organ he donated (or given out of love or in good times,whatever) to his ex-wife? This is totally insane! ;-)

I saw this on another blog last night - isn't it ridiculous? The guy's a DOCTOR, he should know that these transplants are GIFTS not loans! You can't sue to get the kidney, or its supposed worth, back!

What *is* this world coming to??!

I laughed when I read this the other day. Some people are just insane.

Hey, I can't figure where your entrecard droppy thingy is? Just thought I'd let you know becuase I haven't been able to find it for a couple of days now. It could just be my computer.

I Am Harriet, Mira, Lynne, Angie:

I've now seen this guy on the news. He's very bitter that his wife cheated on him. I don't know what that has to do with the kidney. It takes all kinds, right?

ModernMommy,

I tweeted you. My Entrecard is fixed now. I don't know what the problem was, I had to go back and get the widget code again. Thank you so much for letting me know.

My husband and I just talk about the man suing his ex-wife over his kidney was giving to her during their married time, but since his exwife cheated on him, now he want money..we are laughing and at the same time pity for the man loss his kidney.

Preston said...

People do stupid things during divorces. Perhaps he knows it's stupid to request the kidney back (or cash value) but he's doing it anyway to humiliate her. I think that it's pretty low to take a man's kidney and then cheat on him. He was good enough to save her life but now he's not good enough to be part of it anymore.

Lola said...

Preston,

I guess I just don't get why he didn't say he wanted their multi-million dollar house because she cheated and not make it about the kidney. Now he just looks like a jerk.

I kinda feel sorry for him. He probably loved his wife so much and she went out and cheated on him -he's upset and bitter. (Now that I think about it, she was probably cheating on him the whole time, was the lover not a match, I wonder. How did he find out? So many questions...)
