Quote taramartin: A different question - could Adam have donated one of his own eyes instead of trying to get them on the black market? He and Connor could each see then.
I know what you mean. A parent would want to do that. But it's ethically a problem for doctors. I did read that there are certain live donors for things like corneas, but it's so rare. A parent would be fine with living with one eye. I also read that a non-active disease would make someone like Delia a candidate for donation of her corneas. Other parts, no, but corneas yes. I also read that even though a child usually does donate to another child, it's not a necessity--so, you'd think it possible, then, that Conner would have other possibilities (and especially given how often people die in this country every day).
