I have to agree with the court's ruling on this case.  Although after
surgery, the patient will not have much use for his own tissues, I
believe it is still his right to have a say in what is done with them.
Especially if there is money to be made, the patient should be informed
and be compensated for his tissues. It is a simple matter of courtesy
to request permission of the patient to donate his tissue or tissues to
research.
