I received a kidney transplant nine years ago. My wife gave it to me. I couldn't talk her out of it. If paying for a kidney is a faster way for someone to receive a transplant, then maybe that is the way to go. While I was on dialysis there were approximately 40 people died in the dialysis unit from various related problems. Some of these could have been saved if a kidney was available. With the new medications finding a match is not a problem. I know, as my wife and I only matched on having the same blood type. The only problem I would have with the power to purchase a kidney would be in whether the purchaser is a person we would actually want to live. Drug dealers would have the money but would they be a worthy recipieant. It has been reported that Osama has kidney problems, I'm sure he could afford one. How would we regulate the sale to only those who were truely deserving, and who would make the decision as to who was deserving. After all everyone is someone 's brother, sister, mother, father or someother relative. Before we create a monster, it should be checked out thoroughly as to how the whole process would be handled from beginning to end.
