George Jonas, writing in Canada’s National Post, objects to prohibitions on monetary payments for transplantable body organs . (HT David Stinson) Here’s an especially nice paragraph:
Most of all, what makes anyone think that he is entitled to pass a death sentence on a fellow human being by forbidding him to purchase an organ from a willing seller? Is it principle? Choosing to die for one’s principles is one thing; obliging others to die for them is something else again. (In Canada, forcing others to die for one’s principles is called socialized medicine.)
Markets supply .
