When should you harvest organs?
I know one of the families discussed in this article.
Without going into details, there is a close relationship.
The general question in the article is this: Should you harvest organs from a patient that shows minimal brain activity (and thus life) but has no chance of survival? I can understand the ethical concerns, but to have so many organs go to waste is a shame. I think that there need to be VERY strict protocols in place, but it appears that the current rules are too conservative.
One way or the other, it's a very interesting ethical question.
