Selling an organ is definetly a good thing to do. You are basically saving a life, and if you get some $$ out of it, then it's that much sweeter.

kidney=filters blood to get waste like excess water/minerals out. Part of the Excretory (Urinary) system. You can lose one, because the other will grow to double the size to make up for it.

on ebay some guy was selling his. reached 1 million i think

.edit but if selling organs were to be legalized, i think the price of a kidney would go down cuz so many people would WANT to sell their kidney.

but my friend says its wrong cuz people can exploit poor people by taking the organs and only giving a fraction of the money.

btw, by organs i mean the stuff that you dont necessarily need. ie. your extra kidney.
and also, selling it after you die and giving that money to your kids/spouse whatever.

and you only need one testicle


i think its wrong to say that people shouldnt profit out of helping people, but the people that do sell their organs are doing more than the people who dont give up any organs at all

Problem is when you allow people to sell rather than donate a lot of people will think it's easy money, and don't realise just how awful life becomes with one kidney. There are many complications that come from a lot of the organ donars, especially with kidney and parts of liver, and lung. People do in some of the central american countries, and most of them are happy doing it for about 6 months, than they wish they had never done it, but they don't have the money to get one back.

So I think it should just be donate only.

I think it's fine. It's legal to smoke and drink, so obviously it's not a question of bodily harm. I just think that doctors should be required to tell of ALL the risks, complications, and lifestyle changes.

Also, think of it this way. More people will give organs when they die if their family will get money from it. Since everyone will do it, that means the price will drop sharply. That means that everyone wins- donors get $$$, paitients get life.
