Embryonic Stem Cell Research and The Survival Lottery Proposed by John Harris

- Do we "own" our genes. I think so, but only to a point. I don't mean to sound crass, but would a prostitute "give it away" for free. I bring up prostitution because there's a reason it's known as the "world's oldest profession" and because I think as such it provides the most insight on the mindset I believe we have as a specie when it comes to services our bodies can provide. I cannot stress that I'm not calling organ donors prostitutes(though if you sell your organs you kind of are) and that I'm not trying to insult any group I talk about below....   [tags: genes, transplant organs]

Solving the Trolley Driver and the Transplant Cases

- The “Trolley Driver” case and the “Transplant” case are very similar: if we choose to intervene, only one individual will die, whereas, if we do not intervene, five individuals will die. Therefore, in both cases we are given the option to save the lives of five people at the price of one person’s. Both cases also try to explore the notion of “moral permission.” Although both cases are similar structurally, the context of the cases differs significantly. In the Trolley Driver case it is morally permissible to turn the trolley onto the one person, killing him and saving the five....   [tags: intervention, organs, death]

Meaning that the donor’s organs are too weak, or the donor’s organs are too old, in some cases the donor and recipient do not have the same blood type, which then causes alloimmunization (Kawano et al., 2014; Prigent et al., 2014)....   [tags: Organs, Donors, Donations, Surgery, Human Body]
