    Right but I said before:

    Yes, and you brought up a great point.
    As of now, because organs are so hard to get, there is a black market - at a very high price.

    And because of the black market with high prices, it creates a bad incentive.
    -In 3rd world countries, people are killed for their organs, or wake up one day with out a kidney - because people have 'stole' their organs for $

    A lot of people want to legalize it, because if you do, you eliminate the black market. Because when it is legal, prices drop, their is regulation (more sanitary conditions and such), and there goes the black market.

    It's a game of pure incentives

    Selling a testicle has long been an urban myth that quite a few men looked forward to.

    Well yes but now you are getting to the heart of the matter; the problem is wage-labour itself. This is the same reason that prostitution exists.
