ICS "Explores the Future" Series: Debate On Ethical Kidney Markets


Faculty members to debate ethical kidney markets

Luke Semrau, assistant professor of philosophy, and Wendy Lee, professor of philosophy, will debate ethical kidney markets. Robert J. Green, assistant professor of communications studies, will moderate.

Semrau will argue that a regulated market could be designed to ethically increase the number of transplants, improving and extending countless lives. Lee will argue that ethical issues present an insurmountable barrier to the issue and that a donation-only model is the only ethical choice.
