In the book (and film) Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton, dinosaur DNA from in insects that bit the dinosaurs and are now preserved in amber. Scientists are then able to extract the dinosaur DNA and using West African bullfrog DNA to fill in the blanks in the genome, they recreate many dinosaurs in a park. The book and film were works of science fiction adventure since the dinosaurs go out of control. The story is a warning about the hubris of playing with DNA and bringing back the past.…

Death Panels: Can We Handle the Truth? http://www.bioethics.net/2014/03/death-panels-can-we-handle-the-truth/ http://www.bioethics.net/2014/03/death-panels-can-we-handle-the-truth/#comments Mon, 17 Mar 2014 22:57:13 +0000 http://www.bioethics.net/?p=50864 by Thaddeus Mason Pope, JD, PhD

In December, I defended the term “death panel” on this blog.  Specifically, I demonstrated that we already have, and for over 50 years have had, quite a number of tribunals that act as death panels.  For example, at least daily, UNOS denies potentially life-saving organ transplant requests.  While the term “death panel” has a pejorative connotation, the essential concept and function is necessary.  Particularly in situations of strict scarcity, life and death decisions must be made. …

Last week, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the HOPE Act (HR 698), a companion bill to one passed by the U.S. Senate (S 330) back in June. The HIV Organ Policy Equity Act would permit the harvesting of organs from people infected with HIV to be transplanted to other individuals with HIV. Previously no organ could be taken from a person infected with HIV.

The Act calls for regular reviews of research on HIV-infected organs to maintain quality standards.…

In case you have not heard, the big bioethics story this week comes out of Philadelphia where a 10-year-old girl with cystic fibrosis is in need of a lung transplant to survive. Sarah M has been on the transplant list for a while but her chances of getting a lung are slim. According to United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) rules, children under 12 can only get lungs from child donors and can only be offered adult lungs after all potential adult donors have been approached.…

In May 2013, Oklahoma enacted the Nondiscrimination in Treatment Act (NITA).  This law provides: “A health care provider shall not deny to a patient a life-preserving health care service the provider provides to other patients, and the provision of which is directed by the patient or [surrogate] . . . on the basis of a view that treats extending the life of an elderly, disabled, or terminally ill individual as of lower value than extending the life of an individual who is younger, nondisabled, or not terminally ill.”

Like a similar statute enacted in Idaho in 2012, the Oklahoma NITA is directed at disability discrimination. …
