Organ Selling

Organ Selling is a website dedicated to ending the organ shortage and the attendant needless suffering and death each year of thousands of prospective organ transplant patients simply by allowing monetary compensation for cadaveric organs, which will greatly increase the supply.

What YOU can do

Here are several things you can do to help the cause.

What WE hope to do

Here are a few intermediate goals we hope to reach.

  • find congressmen and senators who will introduce repealing legislation
  • have one or more organ procurement organizations step forward and begin lobbying Congress for the right to offer the families of brain dead patients a token of appreciation in the form of a full or partial reimbursement for hospital or funeral expenses, for the donation of their loved one's organs
  • have some hospital administrators and transplant surgeons also speak out about the needless suffering and death caused by the ban on monetary compensation for donated organs

What we DREAM about happening

It's entirely possible for transplant surgeons, hospital administrators, and organ procurement organizations to get together now, without any change in the law, and begin agreeing to use cadaver organs obtained with the help of monetary inducements, directly challenging those laws. I cannot imagine a randomly-selected jury of 12 unanimously choosing to convict people whose only motive is to save lives and to compensate others for the value of their gift. In the 1850s, northern U.S. juries refused to convict their fellow citizens of giving aid and comfort to runaway slaves, in direct violation of the Fugitive Slave Acts.  Prosecutors soon learned to not even try such cases, and legislators eventually got the message, and repealed those offensive laws. Likewise during Alcohol Prohibition in the 1920s, citizens refused to convict their neighbors of bootlegging and running speakeasies.  This led to the repeal of Prohibition. To learn more about this genuine "Power to the People" judicial tool, called Jury Nullification (of bad law), visit the Fully Informed Jury Association website.
