British Catholic think-tank questions new organ-donor law
May 22, 2020
CWN Editor's Note: The Anscombe Bioethics Center has released a statement saying that a new English law which presumes an individual’s consent to organ donation is “regrettable, as it undermines the very idea of ‘organ donation.’” The Oxford-based group observed that many organ donations occur after a patient has been declared “brain dead,” and “there continues to be debate about whether this form of diagnosing death is accurate.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
