The Ethics of Transplants : Why Careless Thought Costs Lives Hardback
If you die through mistakes in moral reasoning, then you are as dead as if you die through mistakes made in medicine. Organ transplantation saves lives yet thousands die every year on waiting lists through lack of organs.
We are exhorted to donate; but is our individual reluctance the essence of the problem, or is it caused by deeper issues in the way public policy is discussed and formulated?
Janet Radcliffe Richards casts a sharp critical eye on the moral arguments, forcing us to confront the logic and implications of our own position.
A book for everyone who is up for intellectual challenge and is seriousabout moral reasoning in any context.
