Compensating organ donors: commodification or freedom?

Research output: Contribution to journalOnline ResourceProfessional

Abstract

[Extract] The Commonwealth government has today announced a 'grant' scheme for live organ donors. The scheme will pay live organ donors the minimum wage for six weeks following donation, with the aim of supporting them financially.
Such a decision is likely to ignite the debate over the morality of payment for 'transactions' involving the human body. There are two sides to this debate: the risk of commodification of the human; and the freedom and autonomy of donors to choose how they deal with their body.
