Abstract:     
Periodic examination of UNOS’s policies is a useful feature of an ongoing effort to assure just and equitable allocation of lifesaving organs and to avoid potential exploitation by individuals. Yet, those whom the authors seek to protect - the majority of patients on the waiting lists and fortunate recipients - are in a morally awkward position because they have not indicated their willingness to donate organs prior to their ailments. Our comment explores this issue.
