Should Selling of Kidneys Be Allowed?

John Schieszer February 26 2008

Economic analysis supports the idea, but critics say the practice would exploit low-income people

THE ABILITY to purchase organs from live donors could largely eliminate transplant waiting times and only modestly increase total transplantation costs, according to a newly published economic analysis.

Go ahead with it if you're desperate for cash. If not slog the money yourself. I don't really approve of selling our organs in the body for cash, there might be some after effects of it.

Yes, it should be allowed. I mean, the Kidney Seller will get the money and the person will get their life. Everyone wins. Well, the person might end up being really poor after buying the kidney or maybe not be able to get a kidney at all but they'd be better of having a chance of getting a kidney. Selling your own kidney for money increases the amount of people that are willing the give away they're kidneys, meaning more people could be saved. Try asking people to simply donate they're kidney. Trust me, not that much people would just go and do that.

Well... I'd like to say, why the fuck not (if they are willing to risk it) BUT at the same time I also realize that making such a thing legal opens up the possibility of criminal activity in regards to the "harvesting of kidneys". So, if they can somehow set parameters where they can control such a thing and make sure the kidneys are being obtained willingly and legally then I think it'd be okay.

depends, if the person is willing and understands what they're doing, it's fine, it's his/her kidney no matter how you look at this.

sooo I support it.

People whining about exploitations are stupid. It's fair trade, people selling and people buying organs for the values they believe it's worth. I'm sure some people would rather lose a kidney than to starve to death or see his/her family starve to death.

PS: Less than half a year's minimum wage (at least in where I live) for a kidney is quite low, especially considering you're living in a developed country where that money won't last you for a long time. There is also the problem with health issues derived from losing a kidney and the medication you may have to take.

Sure, but it might be harder if you only have one kidney. It might not be the same as before. I won't even if I was in debt. >.<
