The Future of Bioethics

Arthur L. Caplan

Oxford University Press

Some of the author’s respondents propose a regulated kidney market offering access to the poorest of the poor to crucial social benefits if they will have their kidneys cut out to use for the rich. That may help a few in the short run but, does nothing to solve the more basic long-term challenge of getting more organs and tissues of all types to transplant. Nor is it a meaningful strategy for providing basic social benefits to all in a sustained manner. Kidney sale is a one time event not an occupation or a way to earn a living over a lifetime.

Keywords:   Regulated markets, presumed consent, opt-in and opt-out policies, default to donation
