Radio question of the day: 02/03/05

Thread Starter 
A million dollar question......

Would you donate a kidney to a stranger for a price?
post #2 of 20
Depends on the price.... Just kidding. Honestly probably not, I'd do it for friends and family though.
post #3 of 20
Yeah, I probably would, not even sure what the price would be though, maybe that they'd adopt a cat?

If I learned I had a rare match for someone in desparate need of a kidney transplant, I would gladly donate one of my own, but not for a price,rather for the life I was helping to prolong and the many lives that would be touched by this person's health and survival.
Friends and family, without even a moment's hessitation.

Same here!

I never make me this question!
Let see... right now it´s certain I said NOPE!...

Well, for me, that's two questions.

First I have to decide whether I would donate a kidney to a stranger. I don't reject the thought out of hand, but there'd have to be a reason why it needed to be my kidney -- obviously compatibility and urgency come to mind, and if it were mine, now, or the person runs out of time, then I probably would. For friends or family, it would be a no-brainer.

Then there's the question of price. It would certainly not be a question of making a profit out of it, but depending on the circumstances -- mine and that person's -- I might want compensation for lost income. If we were both Ok financially, I might, instead of taking the cash, ask the person to donate it to a charity in my name. For friends or family, no price, though if they insisted, I'd tell them to do the latter.

Erm?, no.

I would for a friend or family member, and if the stranger was someone who really deserved it, then yeah. If that stranger was some pot-head or druggie or evil person, then no, I'd not waste a perfectly good organ on them!

These were my thoughts, exactly!

I only have one kidney so that'd be a no.
post #12 of 20
No I would not donate a kidney.
post #13 of 20
if something horrible happened and I wasn't able to take care of my kids or my mom needed an operation or something and i desperately needed money I would definitely consider it, but not just to have some extra money. But I would prefer to save my kidney incase someone in my family would need one.
post #14 of 20
Friends or family-the thought doesnt scare me a bit, Id do it in a heartbeat
strangers-circumstances depend,,but horrible though it sounds, I would prob want to make a profit from it although if I actually heard the story of the person who needed it Im a mush pot and would probably then do it for free.
post #15 of 20
donate a kidney, just so they could have an extra kidney sitting around the house... yes, for a gigantic price.... j/k
donate a kidney because they need a kidney to save their life, i would do it for no price...
post #16 of 20
id do it for close friends or family, but not just to a stranger for money.

probably not. I would want to save it for family or friends in the case they need. I don't believe in the sale of organs. I would donate it to a loved one.
post #19 of 20
I wouldn't sell it, never!
post #20 of 20
hmm i dont know i would save it for my self or for my own family, But if i were to be a lonely loser with no family then i would sell it? Only if they need it and most likely to a child.
Dont get me wrong but why donate it to a full adult who has experienced life so much and not to a child who hasnt at all.

But now im having doubts of my fertility.
i think i would break down to know i couldnt have kids?
