"O" Type Kidney For Sale
|FTLComm - Tisdale - Sunday, August 12, 2001|
|Below is the actual e-mail message that I received this morning:|
Date: 8/12/01 4:32 AM
|When I read that message I had to take a moment and consider this and slowing and
horrifyingly the details begin to sink in. To be available at a specific date means
this is not a kidney donated by an individual who is on life support and it has been
agreed by the family to pull the plug. No this is someone who will have a healthy
kidney removed from their body and sold at auction.
We still live under the same wonderful and ever changing sky, but have we lost something of our humanity by such an offer and what kind of world is it where such things could take place? Let us all resolve to preserve what little of civilisation remains.
