How transplants are causing ethical dilemmas

Raises some of the right ethical issues, but not in a particularly deep and satisfying way. The almost exclusive focus on issues from the individual, rather than societal, perspective, in isolation from the general social and economic environment (e.g., medical tourism to countries where people may be more desperate for cash and thus more ‘flexible’ on transplants), is a major weakness.

But of course I am lucky in that my stem cell transplant did not require a dead donor or my live donor to give up anything (apart from a rather tedious and uncomfortable few days, for which I am eternally grateful), compared to organ transplants.
