This paper looks at organ donation from the point of view of what is just for the donor and beneficial to the recipient. The paper relates that it was suggested that organ donations should somehow be connected with self-interest because altruism alone is failing to meet the demand for organs. The paper also relates that compensation for organ donations has been suggested but there are ethical considerations concerned with such compensation. These ethical concerns are then discussed and the paper concludes that it is important that the public is kept informed about the ethical issues, and shall be offered an opportunity to communicate their concerns.
