Being Proactive About Your New Kidney

Sally Satel explains why she thinks that, contrary to the opinion of a leading authority, nobody is being exploited when you search for your own kidney donor online. Notice that Sallly is talking about donating, not selling, kidneys, and she is clear about the fairly slim chances of escaping dialysis of those satisfied with their place on the official waiting lists. Still, it is jarring to have to "sell yourself" to get someone else to give up part of him- or herself.

Could you lease a kidney? It would not technically be selling, and I suppose you could put it back....

substantial penalty for early withdrawal.....

Maybe you could get a better maintenance contract with a lease...
