Discusses Hart v. Brown, and the Connecticut Superior Court’s decision to recognize that parents could give legally effective consent to operations involving their minor children as long as the consent was favorably reviewed by a court of equity. The author concludes that the Hart test should replace the benefit test. It will not only justify parental consent, but also safeguard the rights of a child in the transplant operation.
