Smokers have less rights to transplant

Almost 50% of the Dutch think smokers have less rights to a lung transplant than non-smokers and 62% think ‘good’ people have more rights to a new organ than criminals, according to a TNS Nipo poll for magazine Quest.

Some 88% think Queen Beatrix should join the queue for a new heart should she ever require a transplant.
