Here is a current topic in news.
In 1984 the National Organ Transplant Act established a system that would allow for a a fair a trustworthy source for organ donations. Within the guidelines of NOTA, HIV/AID infected organs were not to be accepted. While this was not done out of prejudice, it was done to prevent further spreading of HIV/AID.
Today, a new push has been made to allow HIV/AID infected organs to be used for patients who have the acquired immune deficiency syndrome.
In order for that to happen there would need to be a change made to NOTA.
Those supporting the change claim that it will cut the list of patients on the wait-list in half.
Others are hesitant to move too quickly. Not wanting to allow for the risk of mixing organ donations.
