Mataconis on Organ Transplants

Doug Mataconis: "Organ Transplants, Medical Ethics, And Children".

Like Mataconis, I don't blame Sarah's parents for pursuing every legal option to save her life.  Their job is to be her advocate.  I hope Sarah does well with her new lungs.

However, I am concerned that the judge's ruling could unleash new waves of litigation for future organ transplant decisions, and/or lead to a process where organ transplant decisions are wrongly swayed based on the political optics.
