Hypothetical Situation: A scientist announces that he has discovered a cure for cancer. On the way to a press conference where he was to reveal the cure to the world, he is in a near-fatal car accident and will require a full heart/lung transplant to survive. If he dies, the cure dies with him. The only available tissue match is a man at the same hospital in a persistant, vegetative state, who is incapable of giving expressed consent to donate his organs. If his organs are harvested to save the scientist, he will die. There is not enough time to find another donor. Do you kill one man to save another? Regardless of the circumstances, that still makes you a murderer. Is one person's life more valuable than another? What would you do?

To me the man in a vegetative state is already dead. So give the organs to someone who will live a normal life.
