We should all sell organs!

After all,

No, doctor, that's where you have to step aside. Like many anointed experts, Dr. Pereira thinks he and others like him — "the government, the professional societies who help the government make the right policies" — have to make our decisions for us. But that conceit condemns people to suffer and die — as Steve Rivkin did.

Government and professional societies have no right to do that. They don't own your body. You do.

Unfortunately, of course, we're sort of on lease from God. You don't get to do arbitrary things, even if you're a consenting adult, becaue they're offensive to human dignity. Sorry Mr. Stossel, no dice.
