Tissue Rights.

Tissue transplantation has become an emerging issue in the medical field currently. This entails the transfer of biological cells and tissues from one individual to the next. Some cases involve the transplantation of body organs like kidneys, lungs, bone marrow among others. Diseases like cancers and other tumors involve the surgical removal of such growths. There have been cases where the cells extracted by surgeons in the process of ameliorating these malignancies have been used for research. This has led to inventions of new cell strains and been instrumental in the inventions in the biological field. However, controversy has risen regarding the ownership of the donated cells and those extracted by surgeons during the treatment process. There is a group that claims that the donor has the right of ownership of any tissue extracted from their bodies.
