“The death of a donor can never be considered the same as losing a patient on the waiting list. The patient suffers from a lethal disease, while the donor does not.
Not 20, 30 or even 50 patients dying on the waiting list for a transplant can justify the death of a single healthy donor.”

– G.B. Klintmalm from “Primum Non Nocere” American Journal of Transplantation 2008; 8: 275–276.
