I read the article some time ago and thought about it. I found several things about the man disquieting. First, his stating that he's no more important than anyone else in the world...it sounds humble, but leads to the question important to whom?! He has children for whom (I hope) he *IS* more important than a stranger down the street since he is their father. You don't just move out one parent and put in a duplicate. So if he died they would be devestated as would his wife. A married man's life is not his own to do with as he wishes in normal circumstances, there are responsibilities.
Then there was his doing this behind his wife's back... because he thought she'd try to stop him. Well, he's willing to break trust in his marriage to do his own will.
His statement that his children are no more important than anyone else in the world is disturbing. It seems to me that he places them as less important than others, perhaps in that there is no concern for what his deeds might do to them.
In general, this man seems to be setting up *his* decisions and ideas as an ultimate. Near the end of the article he says that it's not fair for anyone to have 2 kidneys until everyone has one... well, it sounds noble may be, but who is he to dictate? Life isn't fair, as we've all be told, I should think. Will he then say that no-one should be happy until everyone is happy? It won't happen in this life.
Pardon me if I sound blunt, but he comes across as assured of his own righteousness and gets publicity for a good deed . Why do I hear "He has his reward" in the back of my head
It is good that the young woman will have a working kidney. But the man is making his family pay a price.
