Docs push for tests of cash rewards for organs


www.msnbc.msn.com

What’s not so clear to the American Medical Association is what kind of incentives — and in what amounts — might encourage potential organ donors and their family members to follow through.

That’s why the AMA has waded into the controversial waters of offering financial incentives for cadaver organ donations, a proposition that can’t even be examined without modifying the National Organ Transplantation Act.

To me this is a slippery slope indeed. I still think this is a bad idea. You could have family's selling there deceased next of kin. That alone would make family members a commodity. There have been stories of people in other countries being killed for organs. I hope there will no change in the way things are currently done.

Perhaps they think that if they can make it profit, it would be worthwhile. It seems to be the prime motivating factor for any commercial interest, which is what the AMA is all about.

Call them ghouls and be done with it!

Of course, if they are willing to do this for NO profit - in other words to save a life - then Bravo!

Any bets which way it goes?

Of coarse there going to be making some money on it.
But thats what makes it so ghoulish. That when your next of kin becomes ill they all of a sudden become a commodity. Why spend money on health care when they are worth more dead?
