It's a medical procedure done out of necessity, what more is there to it?

I meant the ethical, social views etc! Many people say that it is not right to sacrifice animals for our sake. Afterall, they too have a riht to live...

Then you're not asking about transplantation, you're asking about animal rights and animal experimentation.

If you do a forum search we have quite a lengthy thread on that already.
