-- -- -- -- -- 83000.
Americans are on the waiting list for a kidney transplant.
Should they be able to Bonnie -- is on open free market.
Lots of -- site that would save some more lives Fox News contributor medical -- adopt -- Mark Siegel joins the company.
-- -- -- -- -- this because I think this there is a proposal to establish a private free market in fitness and five golf too I wanna sell Juan.
I can establish the price reckons that was the -- What's wrong -- that.
Well I -- to set the stage -- by saying this is an enormous problem that 80000 has doubled over the past ten years 4500 people are dying every year waiting for kidney.
It's a huge problem there's a big black market already where people are selling kidneys so there's -- but I'm against the from a hypocritical point of view I don't want doctors.
Participating in this kind of stuff -- what's gonna end up happening is.
It's gonna hurt people's health is still -- the hotel in the spare one well but it doesn't really work that way -- -- not a great idea.
Take -- hippocratic oath hats off for a seconds in the and it's that I -- -- that look at the -- only from the economic standpoint.
If you allowed a free market price to be established -- kittens you bring along bull -- is all into the markets and a lot of those 83000 people would get kidneys.
What does that -- what I like Erica -- I like that I did but the problem is it's going to be abused and people that -- desperate important and finally is defined abuse somebody that's risking their own health in order to make a buck that's abuse I have a better solution to this there's a new program -- -- organ recovery program.
It seems like some -- science fiction but what's actually happening in New York HA just gave a big grant for paramedics to zoom around and get organs.
Right if -- someone has a cardiac arrest -- the person's already given permission.
Four of 400000 people die of a cardiac arrest.
Outside the hospital every year get their kidneys instead of having people sell and that's what we should do.
We should be faster on the uptake so there once you've done your saying your body parts become part of the public domain.
If you've given permission before -- I don't know because -- not like let's rob McKinney likened likened coma I'm talking about if before here you've given your permission.
The -- so the smokes a pack of cigarettes today and then -- make a minimum wage.
Ultimately you know -- Do you see it I mean can see where maybe they should be able to go ahead and sell -- -- and maybe -- 2030 grand.
Really does I mean that did did did did that have a short life.
Expectancy anyway if there in of this -- lesson to.
You're -- I don't know that probably got a little bit -- Mature there's a lot of -- -- -- -- that we all know that the for the most ordinary Arabs at the life is going to be shorter than it would have been otherwise I I didn't -- those stats.
You know I've seen the patients they they were already doing people are selling kidneys are in the funny thing is wanna hear about a case like that.
I don't really have a problem with the -- the idea of all of putting it under government umbrella and saying OK now it's legal that -- because it's gonna lead to more more abuse I still think.
Organ recovery is a better solution get those organs out right after someone dies.
And by the forward Palin for let's get a market going for recovering organs right after a Carter.
Okay now you -- OK so -- -- watch on good compromise me in good faith I think that's.
It is okay.
That's what we're gonna lose -- -- -- happened bodies -- left.
Bring money into it you increase the supply voltage coming -- of the market in the way you outside talking about it outlooks sick or dying person.
You will buy it you know if you're gone and we want your kids act does not make like -- -- -- -- OK everybody at the end of argument is that.
