Organ transplantation is nessesory as it's main purpose is to save lives so it should be legalised ,and there are many advantages of organ legalisation,but on the flip side it has it's own misuses and black marketing of the organs.

Each and everything has its own advantages and disadvantages its all about us how do we use it.the organ transplant should have very strict rules and regulations by government and should be followed by all doctors.

Inspite of the fact that it has been misused to a large extent we should not forget it's mail purpose is to save lives.Hence it must use wisely.

The flipside of legalising the organ business is that it would cannibalise the poor and only the rich would get transplanted kidneys. This could lead to terrible social costs, crime and violence. No where in the world there is legalisation in trade of organs or body parts. So in my opinion the arguments must be made in favour of donations and not for buying and selling of organs.

But implementation will be quite hard, because they have to consider all the classes of the socity ...... it that is not considered it will be just like the current situation ..... top people forcing low people to give ......

Eye donation still happening ....... its not illegal ..... why now other organs ..... the only thing it should have a classless system

I think it should be legalized but kept in under a committee whose member are from different countries means power of that  committee shouldn't be in hand of one. By ths way we can control he malfunctioning and i agreed with bindu mam.....

Organ transplants are the subject of a quietly growing global drama. There are many benefits of legalising the trade of human organs. Many lives would be saved and there are only a few health risks of donating a kidney. Regulated market would destroy the black market and mafia. Money generated could be used for charitable transplants.

I am in full support to Mr Sudeep , it's undoutable that organ transplantation is very helping to us , but in medical we always calculate the benefit/risk ratio, and here the risk is huge comparing benefits to only richi rich.

Organ donation should find a new home but not legal acceptance. Trading of organs is deeply against the medical ethics and human rights. Modern medical science has many credits to fight diseases through product innovation and research and definitely we will find new solutions too. Today use of artificial organs is gaining importance given the poor availability of cadavers and also lack of accessibility / knowledge among common men. I strongly believe promotion of cadaver transplant should be undertaken by govt and private healthcare players and emphasis on creation of regional organ banks to meet the growing demand. Use of social marketing to allow even penetration and knowledge sharing about organ transplant to the common man from medical, social, religious and political stand point should be emphasized besides creation of stricter prevention of organ trading laws.

Organ transplantaion ( human source) should always be kept as a part of Donation not business .

 Alternatives can be considered:

 * artificial organs (role of medical physics etc)

 * stem cell engineering

                   - for treating/curing ill organs

                   - producing working organs ( on going research)

 * role of biotechnology

 * nanotechnology

 * nuclear medicine

All these options can play a vital role in cases of organ failures .

I feel the term legalizing is far worse than organ trade itself. In our country legalizing is not a problem; but implementing it. As most who argued for 'no' pointed out, it would only make the situation worse.

If it becomes legalized..doctors and hospitals will become a trade centers. Currently they are using their machnieries to detriment the society behind the curtain...after legalization they will openly do the malfunctions.

Absolutely not. Should not be legalised in India nor my country or any other countries. It would be horrendous experience to see a lot of dead bodies around the place simply because some group or groups would go out of their way to commit murders just to get organs to sell. Sorry to say a lot of stuff we see in movies are actually happening in real life. For those who are of the view  that the poor is always the ones to suffer you are very correct on this one. Good debate topic.

Organ trade, these two words  them selves is shocking to ethical believers, to this day I do not know for that matter no one knows exactly how many blind eyes are revived and any money transaction is involved into it.Similarly why other organs are not donated,if it is donated why and who is selling it to whom.The answere is simple, there are many sincere organ donors but the middlemen are real culprits who are these middlemen ? They all are from medical profession,because no transplantation of any organs can take place without involvement of qualified medical professionals.When this trade is legalised the number of share holders in this trade will increase many folds ultimately middle and weaker section of our society will not be able to afford the price, and indirectly asking these two section to die without getting medical attention.

I strongly disagree with this legalization of organ trade.In India we have seen many cases where poor patient got exploited inhumanly by some rouge hospitals and surgeons for there benefit. First and foremost thing to do is our hospitals and doctors should follow strict medical ethics in there practice. If these people would have done their duty responsibly, we wouldn't have raised this question today!!! Even after legalization no can assure this organ trafficking will stop, infact these rouge people will get a legal weapon in there hands to exploit poor patients and developed nations will exploit other poor countries. Only thing what we can do to avoid this organ trading is to do our duty sensibly, there should be some meaning to the word humanity, no one should build there castles on somebody els grave !!!

No.It should not be legalised.According to my opinion,in past 2 years, we have seen lot of illegal cases regarding thefting of organs from patients without their knowledge.Then they are just exporting their organs to other parts of the country.But I am not against to transplantation of organ because it saves the another person to live in this world.My suggestion is , if a donor wants to give his organ then we have to  get acceptance from him like cord blood banking.Then it  should be undertaken by only govt. not by  the private concern.Otherwise it will become a business.This is my general opinion.

organ trafficking has been uncovered recently in india.. i'd lik you to go thru this little artical about organ traffickin..

Saleem was the latest in a long list of poor laborers who had come to
Gurgaon, India to work and lost their kidneys as a result. Police say they
were victims of a major organ-trafficking racket based in this city for
nearly a decade.

Given India’s sagging medical infrastructure, cases of kidney
trafficking are not unheard-of here. Hospital facilities for the
storing and transporting of organs remain inadequate, and poor Indians
lured by the prospect of extra money ensure the traffickers a
continuous supply of fresh kidneys. According to a government estimate,
more than 100,000 kidney transplants are needed in India every year,
but only 5,000 are performed legally.

 

even if its legalized, such crimes will still exist n totally ruin the poor..

legalization should be in such a way that every single individual apart from thier status must be benefited.. awaiting for such a legalization..

I agree with sudeep. Once trading of organs are legalized then it will help only the reach people to get organs in exchange of money. It will create more exploitation of poor people by coercing to sell organ in exhange of money. It will make huge problem in rural & uneducated areas where people will use it for livelyhood by forcefully convincing family members to sell organs in exchange of money.
