Modern Medicine vs. Primitive Ethics

The Objective Standard blog has published my post, Time for the Ethics of Organ Donation to Catch Up with the Heroics of Dr. Joseph E. Murray. Dr. Murray, who died November 26, 2012, performed the first successful human organ transplant in 1954, thus pioneering the organ transplant industry.

Coincidentally, a couple of hours after the publication of my piece, an article by Dr. Amesh A. Adalja was published at Forbes titled To Save Lives, Allow Individuals to Sell Their Organs. It's well worth reading, along with this related material:
