Organ market goes haywire…
24/01/2008

While it indeed is a matter of dilemma whether trade of human organs is at all ethical or not… the need of the hour is to establish an organised organ market.

The financially crippled, quote any price according to their discretion and sell their lungs to less deserving yet wealthy patients just for the lure of money… whereas the more needy patients keep waiting till it becomes too late. A scintillating example of the same is the black market in Tehran where kidney is tagged at a staggering price of $2,500-$3,750, when the same is available in the Institute for Kidney Patients, Delhi at almost half the price… and as if that’s not enough such corrupted commercialisation of organs is not even attempted to be kept a clandestine affair.

Developing countries like India, Turkey, China, Russia and Iraq indulge in black marketing of organs to cater to the needs of patients from more developed nations and examples are umpteen where donors are either being cheated or are beleaguered from health deterioration after selling their organs. Then, the solution isn’t in formation of a legal organ market. It will be repetition of the rich buying the poor’s. This time, not as a slave but to use his organs at the expense of his life.
