Is there a difference between someone who dies on a transplant list—waiting for an organ and someone who dies in need of an organ, but was never listed because of their inability to pay? Is it more devastating when someone dies waiting on the list? Does it matter that one group never had a chance? Is the USA’s organ transplant system acceptable?
The reality is, that the “Gift of Life” is a privilege reserved for those who can pay—and the expenses are staggering.
