  1. Priority to Registered Donors on the Waiting List for Postmortal Organs? A Critical Look at the Objections.Govert den Hartogh - 2011 - Journal of Medical Ethics 37 (3):149-152.
    It has often been proposed to restrict access to postmortal organs to registered donors, or at least to give them priority on the waiting list. Such proposals are motivated by considerations of fairness: everyone benefits from the existence of a pool of available organs and of an organised system of distributing them and it is unfair that people who are prepared to contribute to this public good are duped by people who are not.

  • Directed Altruistic Living Organ Donation: Partial but Not Unfair.Medard T. Hilhorst - 2005 - Ethical Theory and Moral Practice 8 (1-2):197-215.
    Arguments against directed altruistic living organ donation are too weak to justify a ban. Potential donors who want to specify the non-related person or group of persons to receive their donated kidney should be accepted. The arguments against, based on considerations of motivation, fairness and (non-)anonymity (e.g. those recently cited by an advisory report of the Dutch Health Council), are presented and discussed, as well as the Dutch Governments response. Whereas the Government argues that individuals have authority with regard to (...)
