It is estimated by the World Health Organization that one in every ten kidney transplants in the world is done illegally—meaning that the donated kidney came from the black market. A UN & Joint Council of Europe report that comes out tomorrow is seeking to establish international guidelines for organ transplantation that authorities hope will squash the illegal trafficking of organs. One recommendation is to prohibit any for-profit model in organ donations, something that some doctors and economists have encouraged. Is selling an organ for transplant an unethical thing to do?

- Caplan is one of the authors of the UN report titled “Trafficking in organs, tissues and cells and trafficking in human beings for the purpose of the removal of organs.”
Dr. Sally Satel, practicing psychiatrist & lecturer at the Yale University School of Medicine; resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute
- Dr. Satel herself was the recipient of a donated kidney in 2006.

- She is the editor of the just released book “When Altruism Isn’t Enough: the Case for Compensating Kidney Donors.”
