Weather the Legal Sale of Human Organs Should Be Legal
Debate Rounds (3)
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
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.
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.
2. To add on to this the list of transplants is so high that by making the sale of organs legal it will definitely give a huge advantage to the wealthy who will easily just pay for organs while the poor who cannot afford it will probably never get the organs they need since no one will want to donate they will only want to sell.
Conclusion the sale of human organs should remain illegal
Our society is very economically driven, and yes it would be perfect for a person to just suddenly decide they would like to donate an organ to help someone, but in reality that isn't the case. People wait years for transplants which may turn out to be too late. While if there were to be money involved, it could speed the process and save more lives.
2. By making the sale of human organs it will lead to an unjust society.
Conclusion therefore the sale of human organs should remain illegal.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct - Tie. Both had good conduct throughout. S&G - Tie - Both had proper spelling and grammar throughout. Arguments - Con. There were several challenges raised by Con that were never fully rebutted by Pro. This includes the economic issue of only the rich being able to afford organs, or the poor only selling organs for short term financial gains while risking their own health. Furthermore, Pro relied heavily on assumption in the final round with the argument regarding regulation which seemed to me to not be fully fleshed out. Since Pro was pushing for a change in the status quo the main burden fell on him and that burden was not met with the dropped arguments. For this, Con wins. Sources - Tie. Neither utilized sources in this debate.
