    Interesting report on "Transplant Tourism" from the American Transplant Foundation...

    "Kidney sales are legal in the Philippines, where the booming transplant business draws patients from the US, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan. The Health Ministry’s program costs a foreign buyer roughly $73,700 to cover health insurance and a cash gift for the donor. The government’s program is often criticized, citing scandals about kidney sales by slum dwellers."

      "After a
      WHO meeting in November 2006, in which Saudi Arabia and
      13 other countries from the Eastern Mediterranean Region
      pledged to oppose commercialization in organ donation,
      Saudi authorities were considering how to make this
      agreement altruistic, where donors would receive rewards,
      not cash" -Off topic, but what kind of 'rewards' were they thinking of, and (depending on the nature of the 'rewards') why would that be more noble or altruistic than cash?

    The last article with its attitude that human remains are just so much garbage to be thrown away or recycled reminds me of this type of thing: http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/a-cut-above-the-rest-wrin/

    I look forward to attending the meetings and discussions. Others views are how I learn from others and define myself, ...to a point. Some of my best friends are Humanists, Atheists and Agnostics, I am a traditional Catholic that minds his own business. :)

      Looking forward to meeting you:) If everyone agrees, conversation becomes dull. Welcome to Ockham's!

    I am thinking "Soilent Green". If a person has passes and they have agreed to be a donor I have no personal problem with giving. However, the alternative is not good.
