Organs for sale? - Regulation of a Market for Human Organ Donation
Currently, the number of people waiting for a transplant exceeds the
amount of organs available.
The Irish Council for Bioethics is hosting a public lecture and debate
to address the following questions:
Would the commercialisation of organ donation lead to the wrongful
exploitation of donors or increase the amount of organs available for donation?
What issues surround an organ donation system based on presumed consent?
(which presumes a person wishes to be an organ donor unless they state otherwise).
The arguments for and against the commercialisation of human organ
donation will be outlined by Professor John Harris (University of Manchester)
and Professor Paul Schotsmans (University of Leuven, Belgium) at the second
annual lecture of the Irish Council for Bioethics. The lecture will
take place in the O'Flanagan Lecture Theatre, Royal College of Surgeons in
123 St Stephen's Green on Wednesday 11th May 2005 at 7pm.
