Organ donation and mandatory vaccination : is a message that can save lives

strange, when it comes to the topic of health, circles, the conversations regularly and correct diet almost exhaustive to the own welfare. What can you do to enable others to live a healthy life, is rare in speech. The handles currently in the policy.

The competent Minister Jens Spahn advertises in the Bundestag for his model of a contradiction solution for organ donation, at the same time he is pushing ahead in the face of measles cases, the debate on compulsory vaccination; cross-party support, there are many such supporters, criticism comes from the left and green camps. Also strange: Normally, the Opposition brings the government under pressure. Here it is the other way around.

The fact shows how difficult it is to Orient yourself. By no means easier, it is by the policy wants to choose organ donation as an ethical question, according to Some of the mandate holders. While ethics should not be at the time of vaccination so important; here the desired result is one.

in fact, two measures, a contribution that Individual to provide at his own costs for others. In categories of law: an intervention in the fundamental right to self-determination and physical integrity, for there is a need for justification.

In the case of organ donation, it is easier: Spahn wants as a donor does not apply, who is speaking in spite of request. To the bridge a notable gap in the population between the survey advertised the willingness and the actual Donor. Many patients die because of it, although you could live with.

The interference seems to be rather low. Each and every one of them is it free, it fell by lot to reject. And even if this is ignored, forgotten, passed over, hits it later, only the Dead. What Conscience is to enable the members here, therefore, remains something of a mystery. It is less a morality is probably the issue as one of culture, custom and medical practice, as it is also in many EU countries in which this scheme is practiced.

Something different is it to Vaccinate. Here would just put children in the compulsory and, if manageable, a health risk. Over ninety percent of the parents hold reasonably still. The volunteer rate ranges? If, then probably only slightly. Again and again there are outbreaks of measles, which can indeed be limiting, but is always dangerous and, above all, are preventable.

autonomy, freedom, self-determination, that means a lot, but not everything. The liberal constitutional state has to convince before he committed to the service of the common good. In the case of organ donation, much has been tried, it brought little. At the time of vaccination, more should have been done.

on the Other hand, education in the information abundance is, paradoxically, not easier, but more difficult. Even the state with its expensive campaigns, and superior means of communication seems lost, when he looks at a viral spread of mass scepticism, which appears to be against every Argument immune. You believe what you want to believe. Is forced in view of these circumstances, at least a message that will be heard.
