house Bill H.R. 6413

Should the State Department Do More to Curb Global Human Organ Trafficking?

Argument in favor

Illegal organ harvesting and sales for profit harm the world’s poor, and are sometimes used to fund international terror networks. Both the human rights violations and security implications of human organ trafficking should impel the U.S. to take an active role in eliminating this global flesh trade.

Illegal organ harvesting and sales for profit harm poor people and benefit terrorist networks. The U.S. should take an active role in eliminating this global problem.

Argument opposed

While this bill is well-intentioned, raising awareness alone won’t eliminate the global demand for human organs, which is increasing along with human longevity. Rather than making the organ trade illegal, the U.S. should consider other avenues, including legal, regulated markets, to protect buyers and sellers.

I feel like overhauling the healthcare system might curb the demand for human organ trafficking. It seems like "garbage healthcare" harms the poor more than this.

This isn’t even about the USA. Why are we policing the morality of the world when we can’t even agree that a person in the USA has the right to control their own organs? What right do we have to tell citizens of foreign countries how to use their bodies? How about we mind our own damn business?

Yes, but not with this proposal. If the world were to look at the Root Cause, evidence would likely identify the criminals as Conservatives. Therefore, we must abolish Conservatism to address this issue and all other inhumane, unethical and immoral and illegal activities throughout the world.

    This sounds awful, but the way it is written it is all about how awful it is in other countries. If we want to research it and understand it better let’s start at home and make sure we are not a contributing part of it. Republicans always want to focus on how awful others are, but the Christian approach is to address the log in your own eye before trying to get the splinter out of someone else’s eye. We have lots of problems here at home that very negatively affect the poor and contribute to terrorism. Please start here in addressing these problems, and make helping Americans our number one priority for our government.

    Seems to me this is something that belongs to the Department of Justice who should be doing more to track and arrest the US persons involved. Is it that our borders are so under guarded that illegal organs can be brought across without being detected? Hmmm I guess we should give ICE the tools and personnel they need to adequately protect America and Americans from criminals. Build a wall - that’s a start!

    Do not ever present a Bill that when enacted has no power. All it does is make the sponsor look good at election time. Illegal organ sales is already illegal in this country. All this is a “Look at Me” Bill. No, no, no

    No because the medical insurance industrial giant is making bank off of organ and blood “donors” by charging exorbitant, near financially crippling fees to put those donated “products” into other people. Our insurance system is “peddling life” already with their misdeeds and greed. Don’t act like you’re doing a “good deed” by donating blood; You’re just lining the pockets of the insurance executive giants. They’re literally taking advantage of people’s better nature. So no, I don’t think this is necessary. Fix healthcare, then we’ll talk.

    I suspect that more regulation on this topic won’t actually curb it at all. Secure the border and incentivize legal and ethical practices for organ donation. If you want to promote this, tell CNN to cover this topic... oh right they are too busy virtue signaling and perpetuating the anti trump agenda with Trump Twitter watch 24/7. They could do the American people a favor by diversify what they cover.

    We can’t control our own borders, but we’re going to task our DoS to gather and report on other countries’ ability to control theirs?
