How could they??????

I just read this really disturbing article on CNN:

Hospitals accused of skewing liver transplant priority list

My neighbor's son, who was 17 month old, just died this weekend of liver failure. Ever since he was born he waited for a liver transplant, but he just didn't make it, because there was not one available for him.
A story like this really pisses me of. Who do they think they are? Is someone more privileged to receive a liver than others?

Officials said there was no evidence that anyone died for lack of a transplant, but available livers are in short supply, and only the most seriously ill patients are eligible.

Of course, someone died because of this. How many people died while this was going on?
