Death, brain death, and the limits of science: why the whole-brain concept of death is a flawed public policy

Death, brain death, and the limits of science: why the whole-brain concept of death is a flawed public policy. Nair-Collins M., Clinical Trials Support Division, Nathan Kline Institute for Psychiatric Research.

Abstract

Legally defining "death" in terms of brain death unacceptably obscures a value judgment that not all reasonable people would accept. This is disingenuous, and it results in serious moral flaws in the medical practices surrounding organ donation. Public policy that relies on the whole-brain concept of death is therefore morally flawed and in need of revision.
