Debate: This House Would Legalize the Sale of Human Organs

As our knowledge of surgical and diagnostic techniques has increased with time, so has the success rate of organ transplants. The sale of human organs offers a possible solution to this crippling shortage of organs. There is already an established black market trade in organs. Entrepreneurs offer British and Western patients the opportunity to receive privately financed transplants in countries such as India and Malaysia. In 2006, investigators discovered that Chinese hospitals were providing organ transplants using the organs of executed prisoners. In 1983, Dr. Barry Jacobs requested that the US government should create a fund to compensate the families who donate the organs of their deceased relatives. He also proposed a business plan to buy kidneys from living donors to transplant to American patients. However, these is still plenty of opposition to these ideas, and the National Organ Transplantation Act of 1984 still prohibits the sale of human organs from both dead and living donors. Is now the time to finally legalize it?
