Thousands of individuals waiting for transplants have died through the years because the law forbids the sale of human organs. To significantly increase the availability of organs, this murderous law must be scrapped and the trade in organs decriminalised.
If the law acknowledges our right to give away an organ, it should also acknowledge our right to sell an organ. And if the law recognises our right to pay for a life-saving medical treatment, it should also recognise our right to pay for a life-saving organ for transplant.
Individuals able to pay for organs would benefit at no one's expense but their own. Those unable to pay would still be able to rely on charity, as they have done to this day.
If potential buyers and sellers of organs had their legitimate rights protected, many of the thousands of individuals now waiting for organ transplants would avoid terrible suffering and an early death.
How many? Let's find out.
