    Please answer with why or why not.
    I'm not going to be using them at that point, so, sure.

    No way.
    "Soul reason?" You object on religious grounds?!

    The I recommend that you convince people to donate. I all for voluntary donation, but steadfastly opposed to confiscation.

    Well - to be specific, the deceased wouldn't be selling their organs seeing as how they wouldn't be profiting - someone else would be selling them on their behalf or overseeing the process.

    Anyway - yeah, why not. I'm not a donor nor do I wish to ever receive - but that doesn't transfer to what others should be able to do.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    I think that your(or your family if you are deceased) should be able to sell your organs to a healthcare institution. I don't think Bill should be able to sell his liver to a wealthy millionaire who drank too much scotch while some person with a liver problem who did not subject their liver to abuse dies. I certainley do not want to see a government mandate requiring you to donate organs.

    Hopefully as stem cell research grows, this can all be a moot point. Particularly if we can avoid the trappings of embryonic stem cell useage.

    Every profession consists of selling yourself, not just 'the oldest one'. We are ALL commodities to be 'sold', or more appropriately, 'leased'. Anyone who works any job does it on a daily basis.

    Out of curiosity, you don't think I should be able to designate who my organs will go to if I die?
