Should Organs Be Sold?

Episode 10 | 26m 46s

Each day, twenty-two people in the US die waiting for an organ. The introduction of a market for organs could decrease waiting lists, but could also incentivize dangerous behavior from both buyers and sellers. With so many lives at stake, we must ask: should organs be sold? Hosted by Carlos Watson with guests Abigail Blanco, Amy Holmes, Michele Goodwin, and Nahel Elias.
