So essentially, this couple are in a road accident. The man has a broken leg and bruised ribs. The woman however has a worsening Glasgow coma score and is on a ventilator . Dr approaches man and warns him that the ventilator is not helping her she is deteriorating and they want to take the ventilator off of her. The doctor also tells him they found her donor card amongst her belongings and did he know that she wanted to donate. He said of course he knew and that he doesn't want her to donate and to keep the treatment going.
I am so confused as to what the topic is for this part of my question. Is it death and dying? Proprietary interest in bodily materials? Organ donation? It has to be one of them! My guy feeling is proprietary interest in bodily materials, what are your thoughts?
Medical law help PLEASE! Watch

proprietary interest in bodily materials/organ donation (they're interchangeable?) with regards to the doctor and I guess, for the guy in the couple, it would be more about death?
