Multiple Listing for Organ Transplantation: Autonomy Unbounded
Miller, Tracy E.
Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal. 1992 Mar; 2(1): 43-59.
Recently, debate about the distribution of scarce organs for transplantation has focused on whether patients should have a right to place themselves on waiting lists at several transplant centers, thereby gaining an advantage over other potential recipients. This article explores the social and ethical issues raised by multiple listing, contrasting policies adopted at the national level with those implemented in New York State. It concludes by examining the implications of the debate for broader questions about entitlement and access to health care.
