Organ and tissue donors should receive tax breaks for their donation, just as other people can claim donations to charities in their tax returns; and, we should have an ethical market in human organs from living donors. Everyone else involved in transplantation gains significantly - why shouldn't the donors? These are two of many controversial ideas put forward in an issue of the Journal of Medical Ethics devoted to addressing the supply of organs for transplantation from both living donors and cadavers.
Other opinions up for debate are that no one should have the right to say what should be done to his or her body after death, and that the state should hold responsibility for human cadavers and determine their best disposition.
