New Program Offers Cash Incentives for Kidney Donations

WBT

(NEW YORK) — A controversial plan to sell your organs legally is gaining momentum.

Rep. Matt Cartwright (D-Pa.) has proposed a program that offers financial incentives to those who donate kidneys. A plan that may help 100,000 Americans who are on a waitlist anxiously awaiting a new kidney, when every day at least 12 people die in the U.S. because there are not enough donors. 

“You make it something like a pension contribution, or an education fund contribution, something that is non-transferable,” he told ABC News about the cash incentives for kidneys.

The government-run pilot program would be tested for five years, and it could save Kyle McKinney, whose kidneys started failing him at age 15.

“I personally think it would be a great idea,” McKinney, now a husband and father, said to ABC News.

The National Kidney Foundation argues, however, that organ donation with any kind of financial benefit is not a good idea.

“People who are poor may think differently about giving donation of a kidney if there is a financial reward for them to do,” Dr. Jeffrey Berns, president of the National Kidney Foundation, told ABC News.

    Something they reap even MORE rewards from and will steal it right back from you through incremental measures or wiping it away completely before you can even touch it. As far as “education” goes, don’t be f’g ridiculous. ..I thought they said cash incentives? Pfft

  2. Aha…. these organ harvesting Jewish ghouls have a new cash crop, now that they’ve reduced the population of the world’s richest country to poverty with their crooked monetary system.

    Soon you’ll be hungry enough to sell your organs, as many people today sell their blood, and the Jews will get their “pound of flesh”.

    And of course, the whole revolting process is made appealing as it’s focus is shifted from a thieving Jew grabbing another nickel any way he can, to an altruistic effort to help a child:

    “….it could save Kyle McKinney, whose kidneys started failing him at age 15.”

    This is not about saving anyone, unless it’s a fellow billionaire.
