A new scheme in Australia to get kidneys from poor people is being launched. They are saying its for "minimum wage" but its actually $3636 and i bet they have to pay tax out of that too since they are calling it "a wage". This is unethical (duh) and there is a reason they arent allowed to pay people for giving blood. This is worse.

Heres the link

On the positive side, there will be no shortage of kidneys.

And, you know, it STARTS with kidneys and will certainly expand to other body parts.

But, a thought for the pigs their parts have been harvested for some time.

There have been reports where the Chinese are "going to" reduce the number of organ extractions from executed prisoners. One doctor who worked on the transplant team said they were told to come into the operating theater when they heard the rifle shot. He was shot in the right side of the chest so he would still be alive when they harvested. She was told the prisoners were always alive when the harvesting took place.

I'll have two kidneys, sliced finely, please, one on rye with a little mustard, and the other on white, no crust with mayo.

Thats horrable. Blood is a renewable body resource, and there should be NO moral issues with paying for blood, as long as they limit it to once or twice a week, the body simply makes more. In fact, is actually healthy in some ways. I have given blood dozens of times, with no ill affects at all.


Giving up something your body simply makes more of, is VASTLY different than giving up something your body will not replace.

Paying for blood is fine, paying for body parts on the other hand, IMO, is morally wrong, and should be outlawed

Paying for blood encourages poor ppl to donate. Most drug addicts and sick ppl are poor. We dont want their blood but they will find a way because they need the money.
