I am supposed to write a position paper on whether or not you should be able to sell your own body organs. I thought it was and interesting and debatable topic so whats your opinion ug?


In my opinion I think you should be able to just because its your and you should be able to do what you want with your body.

in my book, selling an organ is immoral... but donating is perfectly fine

Selling one for a person to live or selling them for science?

I hope you are aware that you have only one liver...you could sell a piece of it, but not all of it.

yes i am aware of that i'm not as stupid as i look! (which is exactly why you'll never see a picture of me in the only pic thread, i look damn stupid)

I dunno, I'd say it's immoral to make money by selling something you have so somebody else can live. In an ideal world people would be willing to just donate for free to save lives, but you can make a lot of money out of it and people are greedy. Plus with the risks involved it's natural to want some sort of compensation, as it were. But I'd rather donate an organ than sell it.

The power to feel with others give.

ill sell my penis for a fender strat

you got yourself a deal

on topic though, it is kind of a tough question. it is your body, and you should be able to do whatever you want with it - and if people are willing to buy then that is fair enough. but personally i couldn't do that, i just couldn't charge someone for something that could mean the difference between life or death. whether i would be selling it to an individual or for medical research.

No. Tell them to get an organ donor card.

On the back of your drivers license in canada you can choose whether or not you want to donate your organs for the benefit of others when you die. I think its a good thing, might as well save someone elses life.

justin, that was easily the most inspiring, helpful piece of advice anyone has ever given me in regards to my musical pursuits.

Unfortunately you need to be eighteen to get an organ donor card without parental permision. It's a pain, because I'd happily carry one, but my parents don't like the thought of being at a funeral knowing that the body of their daughter is there with her organs and eyes removed =/

Seems a bit silly. Partly because they don't always take all your organs, the chances of you ever being in a position to donate organs is quite low anyway, it isn't their damn choice and finally because...well why have attachment to someone's dead body? It's not them any more.

Bah. Feeble humans and your silly emotions.

Seriously, what are you going to do 10 years down the track when they've figured out how to revive the dead and you're sitting there missing your vital organs. How unfortunate.
