Hello everyone! I recently saw an episode of Dr. House, in which one lesbian partner donated half of her liver to the other. I didn't know that they could carry out a liver transplant by just taking part of one's liver, if the other criteria are a match of course. For a child's liver transplant, they need even less liver tissue. Would you be willing to be a live donor for a child in need of a liver transplant?

I would donate part of my liver to someone I care deeply about, and obviously it would not be a decision I would take lightly. It is major surgery and a major life change, which isn't without risk of course. Still, it would probably carry less pain than the death of a loved one. So that seems like a fair deal to me.
