Fragile Trust The Success and Failure of Required Request Laws, and the Procurement of Organs and Tissues from Children and Adults
This chapter addresses two topics that may appear, at first, to have very little in common: (1) the question of whether required request laws have been successful with respect to organ procurement, and (2) the morality of using infants born with anencephaly as a source of organs and tissues. Despite the apparent incommensurability of the two subjects, I believe that the topics are intimately related.
