PDF - Ethical eye: transplants (2003)
Co-ordinated by Sir Peter Morris, President of the Royal College of Surgeons of England and former head of the Oxford Transplants Centre, "Ethical eye: transplants" raises many ethical concerns about the current state of transplants and xenotransplantations in Europe today, including organ shortages, waiting lists and organ trafficking. It also presents the situation (and legislation) in many European countries, the Council of Europe's work in this field and the standpoints held by different religions vis-à-vis transplants. The inclusion of information on relevant legislation, international transplant statistics, useful websites and a handy glossary renders this a valuable reference book. Of practical use to scientists, students, lawyers, politicians and philosophers, this volume is also accessible for any other interested reader.
