Ron Paul Wants people to buy, sell organs for transplants
Opposing Views
Former Texas Congressman and Presidential Candidate Ron Paul claims the way to solve the organ donation problem in America is to allow people to buy and sell organs as they do with goods at a grocery store. Paul wrote on his website The-Free-Foundation.org about cystic fibrosis patient Sarah Murnaghan, who was originally denied a lung transplant because she was too young to be on the adult transplant list, which begins at age 12. A federal judge intervened in her case and allowed her to get the transplant.

NHS organ transplant service presses for big change of attitude over donation
The Guardian
Far more families must give consent for their relatives' organs to be taken when they die if the transplant program in the U.K. is to be world class, its organizers will say on Thursday, July 18. At the launch of a major new strategy, NHS Blood and Transplant will call for a public debate, asking whether it is fair for people to accept a transplant if they or their families would not agree to organ donation.

North East research could make more organs suitable for transplant
ChronicleLive
Pioneering research in the North East means human hearts which not used because they are deemed unsuitable for transplant could get a second chance to save a life. Organ shortage is one of the most pressing issues in medicine, with hundreds of people in Britain dying each year while on the transplant waiting list. Coronary heart disease is one of the biggest killers in the U.K. and, from potential donors, some hearts are not retrieved due to their unsuitability for organ transplantation. Research is now being carried out at the University of Sunderland and Newcastle University to look at developing tests to get hearts beating again and prove the organs are still viable for use.
