Description:

This paper reviews the pros and cons of paying for organs for transplantation. The paper begins by exploring the lack of available organs and the circumstances that would drive someone to attempt to buy an organ. The paper then defines the current anonymous donation system as one based exclusively on altruism, and asks what the legal, medical and ethical concerns are of such a system. The paper then discusses the gap between supply and demand for organs. Finally, the paper offers a number of problems -- ethical and otherwise -- in offering financial incentive for organ donation.
