Do People Who Are Trafficking Human Organs Help Other People?
(The Guardian, 2012), Denis Campbell and Nicola Davison, says that the unlawful business in human organs special kidneys has advanced quickly and unexpectedly. The reasons why selling kidneys has advanced quickly is that nowadays many countries have wars so there are many poor people who need money to live a good life. Also, after wars, there are many sick people that felt desperation because they lost their organs in the war and no one donated to them, so they needed to buy organs to stay alive. Other reason is because people have two kidneys so when they sell one kidney for important reasons, they won’t die. Most countries punish those people who sell their organs that is why in those countries there are many illegal trafficking of human organs, but in some countries trafficking human organs is legal like Iran. People who are trafficking human organs help other people to live a good life, also help sick people to feel healthy again and not to die. The desperation of many people needing transplantation surgery and the poverty of many people with healthy organs often results in the trafficking of human organs.
It’s a trade where the two persons win, because trafficking human organs help many poor people who don't have money to buy food or clothes by selling their organs that they can live without for money to the sick people who need this organ to stay alive. Selling organs can help the sick person to stay alive and give the poor person money to help his family from humiliating life. I read something posted on (ALL THINGS PAKISTAN blog, 2007) about a poor Pakistani guy who holds with his hand a paper with a sign that says “Would you buy my kidney please?.” I think that poor guy needs money to stay alive, because he needs to eat and buy clothes. We don’t want this guy to do something bad like steal people’s assets to get money. If he had money from selling his kidney he won't needed anybody's help, at least he will leave the humiliating life. I think trafficking human organs is not that bad.
The desperation of many people needing transplantation surgery is one of the reasons that increase trafficking human organs because many sick people can't find anyone who will donate to them so they are forced to buy organs to stay alive. I have a story that happened to my cousin Fatima. She was 22 years old. She had an accident. She lost her kidney in the accident. She needed another kidney. In Kuwait, you can’t buy an organ, so she waited for anyone to donate a kidney for her but no one did. She felt desperate. Her brother Khalid found a poor family that they want money to live a good life. He persuaded one person in this family to give Fatima a kidney for money. He accepted what Khalid wanted, and he went with Khalid to the doctors. They lied to the doctor by saying he wanted to donate to Fatima because he couldn’t say she bought my kidney. Fatima is healthy now, and the poor family sent...
