Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 5, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta High Forecast Saturday 60. idgc Herald VOL. LXY No. 123 AUilillTA, FRIDAY, MAY 5, 1972 PRICE NOT OVER 10 CENTS TWO PAGEi transplant bill aimed at greedy medics By ART JOHNSON TORONTO (CP) Ontario's new transplant leg- islation protects organ recipients against Prof. Horace Krever calls a new phenomenon in the publicity-greedy doctor. But it also protects surgeons and other medical staff against outdated social tahoos especially the qucdsiness many people feel ahout "mutilating" bod- ies. says Piof. Krever, chairman of the committee that rlrafled the legislation last year. The Human Tissue Gift Act, enacted last summer, Forbids disclosure of de'.ails about an organ transplant, except by permission of the donor or recipient. Viola- tors can be fined SI ,000 or jailed for up to six months. Prof. Krever, a law professor at University of Yesl- Drn Ontario in London, said in an interview that this orohibition is designed to protect patients from a doc- tor "going on television and telling the world about I call it the 'Barnard syndrome' Dr. Christiaan Barnard, the South African surgeon, performed the world's first heart transplant. Prof. ICrever, a law professor at University of West- nonally is close-mouthed about it.s aceompfislunenls, mil transplants seem to have changed this. Provides protection In addition lo muzzling talkative doctors, the act nHo provides protection for organ recipients from do- nors or relatives of donors seeking money. Prof. Krever said that in California some organ recipients bad been "pressured1' by the relatives of donors for payment. In Ontario, "there have been a few instances of. persons being distressed" by invasion of privacy alter a transplant operation. The ban on disclosure is not meant to apply to newspapers. Prof. Krever said, adding that he doubts that a publication could be successfully prosecuted on grounds of invasion of privacy. One of Ihe most important features of the act. he said, is that it permits transplants of organs between living persons, a practice carried out before the leg- islation was passed but with a great deal of uneasi- ness on Ihc part of surgeons. He said it had been "a legal problem in terms of consent to 'mutilate' a patient's body by surgery." It was accepted that mutilation through surgery was permissible in order to cure a patient, by re- pairing or removing a diseased organ, Prof. Krever said. Caused doubt Bui "opening up someone who is perfectly healthy in order [o remove a perfectly healthy organ" caused fl deal of doubt about the legal implications. pr'i-of. Krever said the moral and legal taboos nnuiust raulilalion of a body, living or dead, are root- ed in Hie pasl. when (liore no valid reason for ruUing up a cadaver. Medical advances, beginning with corneal trans- plants, made new legislation imperative. The new net, Prof. Krever said, facilitates trans- plants by making it impossible for relatives to veto a person's decision to donate their organs. It also gives a hospital administrator authority to ,-illon n cJrail person's organs lo be used in transplant if next-of-kin cannot be reached to authorize it. The legislation also serves lo educate the public he said, by removing "valid doubts" about Iran'splanU, Pat on back for railways OTTAWA iCJ') _ The railways pot an approving pat. on Ihc hack for their passenger fare policies from J.

From KEUTER-AP SAIGON (CP) South Viet- namese jet fighters blew up 16 North Vietnamese tanks and three heavy 130-millimetre field guns being moved south to- wards Hue in an apparent build-up for a drive on the for- mer imperial capital, military sources here said today. The sources said that pilots, flying the jets also reported knocking out four anti-aircraft guns and killing more than 70 North Vietnamese troops in strikes around mid-day Thurs- day, about 23 miles northwest of Hue. U.S. B-52s, each capable of carrying 30 tons of bombs, hit the same area during the night, the U.S. command said. Three B-52 missions also were flown against North Vietnamese troop concentrations in the mountains 13 and 15 miles west and south- west ot Hue. The sighting of tanks and heavy guns down across the salt fiats beside Highway One be- tween the captured far north city of Quang Tri and Hue e the first indication of what weapons the North Vietnamese plan using against the old city. Intelligence experts here pre- dict the offensive on Hue could come next week, but until now they have been saying it would be limited to artillery barrages. OVERRUN BASES In the mountains west and southwest of Hue, the North Vi- etnamese have overrun two key fire bases in (lie course of their five-week offensive into South Vietnam. They regularly shell three other bases, presumably to divert attention from prepa- rations for a push out of the mountains In co-ordination with the expected attack on Hue from the north.
