I hope you read the comments left here. I have just read your piece on Spiked about organ transplantation. It is difficult to respond to items on Spikes as they don’t have comments and rarely publish letters. The issue for me and I assume others is not the removal of organs for transplantation from the dead, but the definition of dead. Will the definition of death get more “flexible” in the face of human beings becoming increasingly regarded as a collection of spare parts? Possibly not, but let us bear in mind the various reports of living organ donation by the desperate poor and the apparently magical availability of serotype matched organs where there is enough money to pay large sums for them.
