Arthur Caplan has said that "perhaps the most pressing policy issue facing those within and outside of the field [of organ transplantation] concerns the shortage of organs available for transplantation to those with end-stage organ failure" (1). The options available to increase the supply of scarce goods are basically threedonation, conscription, or sale. A good deal of attention has been focused on'thc first two methods (I take presumed consent to be basically conscription with an option to opt out before death), but the sale of organs has been little discussed. ,
