    Man says he sold kidney in U.S. for $20k
    New York recipient says he was near death when Israeli man answered ad

    Nick Rosen, 39, says he was paid $20,000 for giving a kidney to a New York man. He says he did a good deed and that donors like him should be compensated.

    NEW YORK - In 2005, a rebellious and sporadically employed Israeli man flew to New York to give up a kidney to save an American businessman. For that, he says he was paid $20,000, which appeared in a brown envelope on his hospital bed after the operation.

    That payoff would be illegal.

    Total idiocy, that statement. Operating on someone against his or her will is torture: the law is clear about that.

    How about commenting on the illegality of buying/selling body parts?

    Since it already is, what is your position regarding the purchase / sale described in the OP in order to save a man's life? After all, the man obviously was able to afford it. Should you not be able to spend you money as you see fit? Or should you not be able to profit from someone else's misfortune if they are willing and able to pay? Who decided that it was illegal? Why should it be illegal? Is it a moral issue?
