Paid Transplants A Reality in America

If reports that 1500-2000 paid-for kidney "donations" occur in the U.S. annually, payment for organs is an undeniable reality in America.

Given the history in America of the effect of banning commerce in things for which definite demand exists, one wonders whether lawmakers will have the courage to develop policy based on the balance of interests rather than the political expedience of pushing puritanical proclamations on the public -- claiming that moral reasons exist to tell people they do not own their own bodies and cannot choose as they like what to do with them that does not harm third parties.
