No nobody should be paid for donating an organ. It's a donation for a wonderful cause

One question which I do not know the answer to. Does the hospital receive money for providing an organ or make some money from the use other than the surgery? If they do then the donor should get something.

people who wish to donate thier organs either after death or in the case of lungs and liver (We can live normal lives with one) shuld be commended. If a persons desides they don't want their organs taken to save a strangers life then that as it has and wil always be the patient and no one eles decision.
The UK Gvernment haven't realised that 4 million pints a blood will sort out oyr blood shortages. Oout of 61 million 2 million can give blood twice a year. 25 million are can and be safe...

I totally agree with Susan Boyer. in these days where the materialism govern every thing in our life, such good intention may turn to disaster! Here a case of Chinese teen sells kidney to buy iPhone, iPad!

with the cost of health care what it is today I think there would be many more organ donations if the donor were to recieve free health care for life---I'm just saying.

I myself think that if your doctor thinks you are healthy enough to donate an organ without unnecessary risk to your life you should be able to sell whatever part you choose evn for financial gain---i have been marked as an organ donor on my license ever since the program started!

Absolutely NO payment & we should ALL be in an OPT OUT scheme not a sign in scheme so that we would have to say if we didn't want to donate. Far fairer for the relatives than the difficult decision of chosing for a loved one after death - That way MORE usable parts. We don't have a problem really in England as we have a "free" health service, having paid for it all our working lives. Well done to those who are living donors, feel proud.

It is my body, my mind, my soul it should be my choice to do as I like. If I want to sell a kidney then it should be my individual choice. If it is not illegal to abuse my body with diet, lack of exercise and other negative practises then why all this concern over whether I allow my body parts to be used to assist someone else for profit? Not that I have ANY desire to sell a body part, that is not the point. It should be MY choice and not anyone else's! Besides no one cares where I leave or what I do with my sperm.

I think that people need to distinguish between a LIVING donor and a deceased donor in this thread. Living donors take on risks, risk not getting health insurance, etc... Living donors are the means to getting more people off of dialysis. Of course, there are "deceased" donors as well. So, the comments should be more specific.

I think living donors should get their hospital bill paid plus something for their trouble. I don't care how much of a "hero" a living donor is - there is a medical danger involved. It would be nice to know if I donated a kidney that at least I could pay my hospital bill. That's reality not morality.
