I agree. If you wanted to, why shouldn't you be allowed. If my wife was in dire straights and the money would save her, no question that I would do it.

If you can give it away, you should be allowed to sell it.

I really believe that and can't think of an exception where that is not the ideal situation.

I get there are practical situations like wildlife that we would not want to do that.

However, as far as your kidney, just think how many more donors there would be that if after a horrible accident, your organs were purchased just like a patient purchases any other medically necessary supplies and the money went to your heirs. There would be no shortage of organs and I believe the supply would rise so much that the market rate would not be that exorbitant (I never spell this word right the first time :oops: ). Lives would be saved, quality of life would rise, it would be a great thing for society.

I think that is a perfect example of do-gooder control-freaks killing people.

It's simply not fair how many people die and needlessly suffer for some misplaced goal to control.

No need to save for a funeral, just sell off my spare parts!

I'd hope you get more than the cost of a funeral, but if the supply was so great that that is all you got. Just think of the lives saved and how many people would have their quality of life improved.

Damn the consequences! But it makes them feel good about themselves. Haven't you realized this is what drives liberalism?

If organs were able to be sold, people would leave it in their wills as a cost to help offset funerals or as part of an inheritance.
In a free society, it is not the obligation of the citizen to prove to the government that he is a good person. It is the obligation of the government to prove to the rest of the citizenry that the citizen is a bad person, with probable cause.

You mean for them. It's not going to do you any good at that point. :no:

The organs themselves are donated and I'm all but 100% sure they are free. Now, do the hospital that collects them, the people that ship them, and the people that implant them make a profit that is passed on to the recipient? Yes on all accounts I believe. The only one that doesn't profit is the person that is supplying the organ.

So if you can sell your kidney, can you sell your kids?

Lots of people are okay with aborting them. Will this lead to raising kids as an income and selling off extra organs like kidneys? Pretty slipper slope.

I saw an article recently on selling organs on the black market in foreign countries. China has a mob that kidnaps young people to harvest their organs to sell on the black market. can't remember the site I read it though.

It'd probably cost more than that to remove it.
