Themes of this chapter include Iranian sexism, Turkish and Moroccan sexism, the use of brain-dead cadaver kidney donors, wise advice from magician Penn Jillette, the variable motivations of Iranian living kidney donors, death protocols in the "first world" as compared to the "third world", the lonely life of Iranian intellectuals, and the Persian soul.
The final paragraph of this chapter, however, was very distressing to the LIBERTARIAN BIOETHICS BLOGger. In this section the author admits she believes "caring for the less fortunate" is a personal AND a governmental responsibility. Say it ain't so, Sigrid, say it ain't so!!! Such a statement (in conjunction with several other opinions delivered previously in the book) certainly makes me doubt the "libertarian" bona fides of Dr. Fry-Revere. I trust the remainder of the work will clarify her political persuasion.
