Ethical Statement re: Executed Prisoners
A statement outlining the TSANZ opposition to the use of executed prisoners as organ donors has been attached to the website. This statement was developed in close collaboration with the ethics committee of The Transplantation Society ( http://www.tts.org/ ) and we support fully their statements in this area. It is a fundamental principle for the TSANZ that organs be given freely and without coercion. The use of organs from executed prisoners fails this fundamental principle. Our opposition to this practice is outlined more fully in the attached document (PDF: 23KB).
