In a transplant situation normally person A receives a part of person’s B’s body and if all goes well person A walks out of the hospital.
There are some scenarios that one can come up with however where it’s not sure who is leaving person A or B and the legal implications that would seem to arise from it.
One such would be a head of person A attached onto the body of person B, presumably the other parts of these formally individuals are no longer functioning. Who is this person?
What if the left side of person A is attached to the right side of person B, now who is this person?
There seems to be a lot of legal ramifications in who this person is, and perhaps this question may arise as medical technology increases and more parts are able to be transplanted, perhaps parts of the brain may one day be on the list of transplantable organs, which really starts opening up this question.
