Transplant policy in the United States relies on volunteers for donation, both living and dead. This approach cannot meet the increasing demand for transplantable organs. Novel approaches that work within a system of volunteers are unlikely to succeed either. In this special lecture, hosted by the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics, the ethics of alternative systems are explored practically and philosophically.
