ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the question of whether organ donors should be paid in an effort to increase the supply of organs which is available for transplantation. He suggests that they should because each year the waiting lists for people waiting for organs gets longer. He argues that a change in organ donation law which allowed donors to be paid would increase the supply of organs and protect the health and dignity of waiting patients.
