Sale of human organs for transplants: Should the sale of human organs be legal?

  • Yes. Its the humane thing for society

    Saves lives. The sale of human organs should be legal, because it would make everyone better off. There should be rules of course, especially prohibiting the sale of organs from minors or from the mentally incapacitated. But if a person thinks that they will be better off donating their organs, by all means, they should have the ability to.

  • It saves lives and money

    According to the National Kidney Foundation, 3,381 people died last year waiting for a kidney, and each month the wait-list grows by 2,500.

    The ban of selling kidneys effectively imposes a price control of zero. This price ceiling creates a persistent shortage. Some might object by saying that only the rich could afford the kidneys, however, insurance companies currently pay around 90K each year for dialysis so it would be good business for insurance companies to buy kidneys rather than pay for costly dialysis until a donated kidney becomes available.

    Make it legal to buy kidneys and it will save thousands of lives.

  • Yes, it would save lives.

    Yes, the sale of human organs should be legal, because it would make everyone better off. There should be rules of course, especially prohibiting the sale of organs from minors or from the mentally incapacitated. But if a person thinks that they will be better off donating their organs, by all means, they should have the ability to.

  • It's for a good cause.

    I for one am indeed an organ donor, and will always remain one. I think it's perfectly fine for the sale of human organs to be legal. It's for a very good cause. The cause of life. If someone is going to live a nice, long, and healthy live, then I see nothing wrong with that.

  • No, the sale or human organs should not be legal.

    This of this situation: You are healthy and take care of your body, but you contract a lung illness forcing you to need a lung transplant. The person in the hospital room right next to you has been a smoker all their life, and just completely ruined their body. There is only one organ available, and guess what. You die and the smoker lives just because they could afford the organ you couldn't.

  • Organ sales would be unfair and unjust to the needy, poor, and sick.

    Allowing for the sale of organs for transplants would open up a horrifying dystopian environment that we should not want anything to do with. It would eventually become the policy that only the rich are able to afford the ability to get organ transplants, because instead of going to the national donor list, they'd be for sale to the highest bidder.

  • No it should not

    I do not think that human organs for transplant should be for sale. I think that human organs for transplants should be donated for the good cause. I know that money does offer an incentive for some people to give their organs, but I think that the greed of selling organs for profit would bring about much more negative things.

  • No,the sale of human organs should not be legal.

    The sale of human organs should not be legal.The human body should basically be considered a gift from God and gifts from God can not have a monetary value put on them.And who is to say what each organ is worth or if one person's organs are more valuable than another.

  • No, human organs should not be made publically available

    The only time that human organs should be made available is during medical intervention. Live transplants and deceased to living transplants should continue to be allowed with consent from both parties, as they have proven to be essential in medical procedures. The outright sale of human organs, however, should never be made legal. A person's organs are precious materials that are invaluable and go far beyond the realm of legal sale. It would be a violation a person's rights and body to make organ sales legal.

  • No, the sale of human organs should not be legal.

    I believe that the sale of human organs should not be legal. If the sale was legal, does that mean only the rich get to survive? The decision as to who gets a life saving organ should not be decided by who has the most money. Instead, more focus should be put on getting people to donate their organs to meet the demand.

  • No legal sale of human organ should not be legal

    I believe that the sale of human organs should not be legal. If the sale was legal, does that mean only the rich get to survive? The decision as to who gets a life saving organ should not be decided by who has the most money. Instead, more focus should be put on getting people to donate their organs to meet the demand.
