This will be the central topic to this essay. This paper will intend to justify our position in accordance to a clear justification and referenced explanation in the premise that considers the bioethics of organ transplant.
We will begin by taking into account that the subject purposely committed suicide as evidenced by her willing intake of poison in order to provide herself, of a first hand experience of organ transplant. It is noteworthy to point that beginning with her purpose on acquiring such procedure there are already a number of issues that can controvert why she should receive a transplant.

The former is a decision necessarily done by the patient prior to his death, this is with the account that the patient himself/herself is capable and coherent to make such kind of decision, while the latter involves a decision concurred by both patient and immediate family members, with which the patient is already incapable of making that decision for reasons that he/she may already be in a state that pronounces clinical death. Both of which, aims to outlaw the corrupt and inhumane practice of trading (the act of buying and selling) human organs or profiteering over organ donations. Moreover the main purpose here is primarily focused "to reap the medical benefits of organ transplantation
