A Market For Selling Organs

I’ve been noticing that the usual suspects on the right have been pushing to remove regulations on organ donations, and allow “the market” to rule. So we can be more like the slums of India, I guess.
Here is an example of this,

The establishment of a transparent, public market to permit the sale of organs from live donors will transform organ procurement from a lengthy, stressful, medically damaging waiting game into a safer, more efficient, routine, life-saving process. Such a market would have both economic and moral merit; it would deliver more and better organs at less cost than alternative options, and will result in more lives saved.

The right has largely become a pay-to-play operation, so this might mean that some really, really rich person somewhere is on a waiting list for a kidney…
Expect to see more of this.
