15 Feb 12: Organ donation
Every year around a thousand people die waiting for a donor organ. Now many patients and doctors are calling for radical changes to tackle the organ shortage to save lives. A new report by the BMA says patients could be kept alive solely to harvest their organs . There’s also a call to switch to a system of presumed consent where people would assumed to be a willing donor unless they actively opt out of the system. Is it about time we re-drew and updated our ethical boundaries and set aside our moral squeamishness to save lives? Or is this a horrific vision of Brave New World utilitarianism were we reduce patients to a collection of potential spare?
