    Yes, it's your body, but your choice has far-reaching overwhelmingly negative and harmful affects on others, and so your choice should be restricted.
    A black market for organs does exist.

Introducing market incentives would be a HUGE improvement, and would make both the buyer and seller much better off than they would be without the transaction.
    Oh hell no! If this were to happen how many people would be killed in order to harvest those organs to sell em?

    I may not need my organs after I die but that doesn't mean that I want my body desecrated.

    There are already strong impetus to harvest organs in situations other than brain death - there is some discussion in relation to cardiac death being a criteria - and to be honest THAT makes me shudder
