Download E-books Organspende - Herausforderung für den Lebensschutz (German Edition) PDF

By Konrad Hilpert

Nach einer langen section uneingeschränkten Ansehens stößt die Transplantationsmedizin in Deutschland in den letzten Jahren auf ein nüchterneres Klima. Die Gründe dafür sind vielschichtig: Unbehagen am Gegensatz zwischen der teuren Hochleistungsmedizin und den Einschränkungen bei der Grundversorgung; die Erkenntnis, dass die geltenden Regelwerke nicht jeden Missbrauch verhindern können; Missverhältnisse zwischen den durch Berichte über neue Forschungen ausgelösten Hoffnungen und dem Umstand, dass derlei Ansätze doch nicht so schnell in anwendbare Therapien umgesetzt werden können; schließlich auch Zweifel an der Plausibilität der Todesfeststellung. Der vorliegende Diskussionsband bietet ein detailreiches Bild vom derzeitigen Sachstand der Problematik. Neben Theologen kommen dabei auch Experten aus Medizin, aus ärztlicher und psychologischer Praxis, aus Rechtswissenschaft und Philosophie zu Wort. Mit Beiträgen von: Heinz Angstwurm, Monika Bobbert, Franz-Josef Bormann, Thomas Breidenbach, Christof Breitsameter, Andrea Esser, Stefanie Förderreuther, Eckhard Frick SJ, Monika Führer, Markus Guba, Bert Heinrichs, Konrad Hilpert, Ralf Jox, Nikolaus Knoepffler, Hartmut Kreß, Dietmar Mieth, Johanna Rahner, Jochen Sautermeister, Walter Schaupp, Thomas Schnelzer, Ulrich Schroth, Manfred Stangl, Sibylle Storkebaum, Wilhelm Vossenkuhl und Markus Zimmermann.
