Show Summary Details


This chapter argues that in cases when the healthy are not under a duty to make their organs available to those who need them, they have the right to sell them for a profit. It reviews two objections to organ sales: the commodification and the exploitation objections, and outlines ways in which organ sales should be regulated.

Keywords: autonomy; commodification; exploitation; personhood
