Recently, doctors at the University of Maryland performed the first human heart transplant from a genetically-modified pig. The patient is 57-year-old David Bennet who suffered from terminal heart disease. The operation was successful and the recipient is doing well. Many consider this operation a real breakthrough in thе medicine sector, which might help reduce the waiting time for donor organ transplants.
On the other hand, this operation caused a lot of ethical controversies. As it turned out, Bennet has a criminal record. He had committed a violent crime 34 years ago. Due to these circumstances, the publics’ opinions are now divided. Some believe that a person’s past should not be reflected in the receipt of medical services. On the other hand, others believe it is wrong to perform an operation on a previously-convicted person for a serious crime.
Accordingly, Real Research has launched a survey on transplants to patients with a criminal record. For instance, does the public agree or disagree with enabling a criminal to receive this groundbreaking surgery? Are people for or against the transplantation of a genetically-modified pig’s heart into a human being in the future? Also, how do they feel about providing government-sanctioned medical care to criminals who are currently jailed or who have served a sentence?
So, hurry and share your opinion on the survey on the Real Research App from January 26, 2022. Afterwards, you will receive 10 PLF as a reward.
