Just seems to me that no one has the right to say if she deserved it or not. It`s done...someone lives while someone died. Why get into hysterics about it?
And WTF does her smoking have to do with anything? Are smokers less deserving? Hell, if my face had been eaten off by my dog- I wouldn`t just be smoking cigarretes...I`d be chiefing.
And that`s simply my opinion.
Edit: Are you suggesting we kill people because of their uniqueness, Twist_13? (Because, believe it or not, twins are unique.)
That has to be one of the most vain things I have ever heard in my life. If your "face" is the most unique thing that you have, you as sorely missing out on life and the ability we have. Sheep to the slaughter...
This is without a doubt an amazing medical breakthrough. but I too think they should have found someone a little more in need. akthough now they experimented it on her and if it had gone wrong, at least it wouldn`t hurt some poor burn victim.
Should smokers be denied all medical care now?
As for the circumstances which placed her in the situation: Are those who attempt suicide and survive not allowed a second chance at life?
I`m not talking about skin being exempt from transplantation - this is already prevalent in practice. My argument is exclusive to the `face`, the most unique and personal possession anyone is born with.
Too bad she had to start smoking again.
thats the french for you i guess, ignorant! at least the american is deserving.. just a thought, dont majority of french smoke?
And I agree that she was not the most deserving candidate. I saw something on Discovery Health though, that said there are two teams of doctors attempting face transplants. Obviously the French team got there first, but the American team is still working and the candidate they`ve chosen is a woman who was burned fleeing a building at 9/11.
Why should it be illegal? If a person who dies is an organ donor, and skin is an organ (yes, it is) why should that be exempt? What ethical questions does it raise? I don`t think this should be illegal, by any stretch of the imagination, but there should be a rigorous screening before candidates are chosen.
