  • At the dawn of organ transplantation, the dead donor rule was accepted as an ethical premise that did not require reflection or justification. Dr. Robert Truog and Franklin Miller write that, in retrospect, it appears that reliance on the dead donor rule has greater potential to undermine trust in the transplantation enterprise than to preserve it.
