Nair-Collins Debates the Bioethical Issues of Organ Donation


Associate Professor Michael Nair-Collins, Ph.D., participated in a debate with Tracie Mahaffey, Ph.D., from the FSU Department of Philosophy on the topic “Organ & Tissue Donation Programs: The Bioethical Issues.” The debate centered on the idea of transitioning to an opt-out organ donation system. Mahaffey supported this approach, citing widespread public approval and willingness to participate, while Nair-Collins opposed it, emphasizing concerns about organ donors' lack of valid consent and the accuracy of death determination relative to the legal standard.
