Mother of three receives life-saving kidney transplant
after family friend secretly puts
herself up as a donor REAL LIFE SITUATION IS THE OPPORTUNITY TO SAVE A LIFE
AND BE SOMEBODY'S HERO WORTH MORE THAN ETHICAL, MORAL AND RELIGIOUS CONCERNS? KNOWLEDGE ISSUE What are the criteria for brain death?
Can you kill one person in order to save lives of 5 other people? DOCTOR'S ETHICS
BRAIN DEAD OR NOT? The health and life of my patient will be my first consideration.
I will maintain the utmost respect for human life, from the time of its conception, even under threat, I will not use my medical knowledge contrary to the laws of humanity.
Hippocratic oath Should we deny organs to non donors? MORAL ISSUES Should we let our emotions decide instead of us?

Face transplantation EMOTIONS AND PERCEPTION July 15, 2012, New Zealand
'Parents deny daughter life-saving transplant'
Jehova's witnesses do not approve blood donation, which makes organ donation impossible. RELIGIOUS ASPECTS Catholicism - transplants are morally and
ethically acceptable to Vatican Islam - religion believes in the
principle of saving human lives. Shinto - injuring a dead body is a serious crime Do you need your organs after you die? POSITIVE SIDES OF ORGAN DONATION YOU can save more than one life. This knowledge issue can also be implied in problem of morality/immorality of euthanasia as well as abortion. IMPLICATIONS CONCLUSION Despite all moral, ethical, religious and other concerns when it comes to organ donation, positive sides of this humane act overpowered. heart lungs cornea face bones hand liver pancreas skin veins & arteries Do ALL people deserve second
chance? Anyway, whether person will donate his/her organs depends only on his/her view and opinions on donation. It is worth knowing that by signing a card, one can save 5 lives after death. THANK YOU FOR
