Title
The curious case of umbilical cord blood: minors and donation
Author
Abstract
The author of this article makes a case for considering both parents as decision makers about UCB cells in the donor's best interests. At this moment, saving the cells for autologous use, donating it to a sibling, a third party, research, and even destruction, are all possible decisions the parents are allowed to make. A possible normative framework would allow a hierarchy in these decisions: first donation to a sibling, then saving for autologous use, followed by donation to a third party and research and finally destruction.
