Pro

1) The amount of Americans waiting for a transplant outnumbers the amount of donors by four to one but people's willingness to donate would increase by allowing cash payments for exchange of their organs.

2) The donation of blood, semen, and eggs, and even medical trial volunteers, are very often economically compensated and the same principles need to be applied to organ sales.

C) The United States should legalize the sale of human organs

Con

1. The sale of human organs if it becomes legal will lead to human trafficking and profiteering. Alot people will do what ever it takes to get their hands or organs to sell and make a profit of it.
2. The sale of human organs is not right and will give a even more unfair chance to people with little to no money in getting the organs they need as the more wealthy people will indeed be able to afford to buy the organs before the poorer people and it will ensure the rich being the only ones to be able to get organs. Meanwhile if every person regardless of class and money is put on a same donor list which accepts organs by donation then anyone will have the chance to get the organs needed.
C. The sale of Human organs should be illegal.

Pro

On the contrary, by banning sales of human organs it increases the sale value of organs on the black market allowing the trade of organs and human trafficking crimes to grow even more. Besides the fear of a crime outbreak can't cease the chance of numerous people to be alive and carry through with their lives.
The sales of human organs does not only allows the very high possibility of saving lives, since the list of number of people waiting for a transplant is so high, but it also creates an economic advantage for a person who may be in need of money allowing the possibility of also having a better life.
Once again, the sales of human organs should be legal.
