The rejection of a transplanted organ by a patient’s immune system can be dangerous at best, and deadly at worst. Although advancements in modern medicine have decreased occurrences in transplant rejection drastically, it is still a looming threat among those with transplanted tissue matter.

Hyperacute rejection occurs a few minutes after the transplant when the antigens are completely unmatched. The tissue must be removed right away so the recipient does not die… Acute rejection may occur any time from the first week after the transplant to 3 months ...view middle of the document...

Both states would be completely within their rights to develop their individual policies as to the extent and application of this process in-house, which would avoid this topic being completely stagnated at a national level (as it has before). As long as each state is able to respect the others’ right to “agree to disagree,” some of the animosity between the opposing viewpoints would dissipate. Furthermore, those in need of this procedure in a state where it has been deemed illegal would be able to receive proper treatment in a different state where the process is condoned, helping patients and their families avoid being forced to seek help internationally. This would lower the both the cost and time...
