Students should be allowed to sell kidneys3rd August 2011
A researcher at Dundee University has suggested that students should be allowed to pay off their debts by selling a kidney.
Sue Rabbitt Roff said it was time to "explore" kidney donors being paid as an "incentive" with payment be set at about £28,000, which is equivalent to the UK average annual income. However, the British Medical Association (BMA) said it would not support cash being paid for organs. It is currently illegal to pay for organs for transplantation under the Human Tissue Act.
