Responding to commentaries by Drs. Akaida, Ishihara, de Castro and Moazam, the authors further examine the roles and responsibilities of donors, recipients, health care professionals and ethicists in living donation. Individuals involved in evaluation and selection of living donors must be vigilant in responding to changes in practice. The authors want to help the recipient without undue threat to the donor. The dynamics in donor-recipient relationships are an important piece when trying to understand the motivations for live donation and often play a key role in determining whether a donation is ethical or an abuse of power. If the transplant community does not seek answers to the question of why a donor volunteers to donate, then we are responsible for the harm that results from our willful ignorance.
