A Review From Past to Present:  Arguments Supporting Using Children as
Solid-Organ Donors

From the 1950’s, arguments have been put forward in defense of the claim that it is ethical to make use of children as organ donors. This talk will review these arguments and ones more recently put forward, as well.  This talk will argue that such attempts continue to be problematic.
