Human Tissue Transplants


Modern developments in medical science enable the transplantation of different types of human tissue, from living and dead donors, and raise issues of a moral, ethical, religious and legal nature. The purpose of this paper is to review legislative measures in some Commonwealth jurisdictions designed to regulate these practices so that the public benefit is advanced while safeguards are preserved for the rights and beliefs of all the parties legitimately concerned in the decision which results in a transplant.
