A Small, Good Thing -- Anencephalic Organ Donation: Response
Buehler, David A.
Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics. 1993 Winter; 2(1): 81-87.
Humility is becoming in theology, so I wish to address the case of Baby Theresa Ann Campo Pearson modestly, merely by asking questions and forgoing the neat distinctions that have hobbled moral theology in the past....Because Christian ethics is not about the knowledge of good and evil but concerned more with morally tuning oneself into God the Creator, I propose four questions in a moral context in which human judgments are penultimate and accountable to the gospel: 1) Was Theresa (ever) alive? 2) What rights (if any) did she have? 3) Who decides for Theresa? 4) What limits (if any) are imposed on donating her organs?
