  • I don't see why not.

    The person is dead anyways so it's not like they're going to be missing those organs with all their heart (pun intended). Plus, think of the potential deaths that could be stopped. I also believe in one giving their life to donate his or her organs because it's not like suicide with everything going to waste. (If it's just kidneys then old news there).

  • Yes, of course

    My point here is that if the sale of human organs is not legalized people would still illegally sell human organs. If we legalize the sale of human organs we can eradicate the black market in that department. Anyway it is the person's choice of whether he/she wants to donate or sell their organ or organs

  • Only if they aren't purchased by recipients directly.

    Financial reimbursement could help with organ shortages. But this must be set up in a way so the recipient of the organ could not purchase it directly. That would create a situation where the rich could outbid poorer people in need of organs. If hospitals or some other regulatory body purchased organs from donors (or donor's families for postmortem donation) for a centrally set price, this could encourage more people to become organ donors, increasing supply.

  • Your organs are there for a reason

    If every human needed 2 kidneys to live and were born with 2 to use, then there would be a uneven number of kidneys to share :/ you're given what you were born with. I think they've been sucessfully cloning organs for implants too. I mean, if someone lost a organ, we'd have to take another person's organ, and then that person needs a organ and it goes on and on until you let that person die and take his other organ for another organless person who was rich enough to pay for it.

  • No it should not

    Just not in the name of science Just not in the name of science Just not in the name of science Just not in the name of science Just not in the name of science Just not in the name of science Just not in the name of science Just not in the name of science

  • No, of course not.

    The point here is that there are far less organs donated than actually needed. But there is already a system where people are automatically opted for donating their organs at death, but they can opt out at any moment without any cost. This would solve most problems without the hassle of actually putting a price on human organs.
