8/23/2003: Kidney sale



The official caption: Liaqat Ali lifts his shirt to show scars from an operation after he sold one of his kidneys for around $1,800, in the village of Mateela, Pakistan, August 13, 2003. Pakistan is fast becoming a hotbed for trade in live kidneys, with hundreds of transplant operations taking place every year.

Note that I think they are saying this picture was taken on August 13, not that the operation took place on August 13.

Kinda reminds me of the Futurama episode when Bender sold his body for a wad of cash. I wonder how long the live organ market will be around concidering this article: http://science.slashdot.org/article....id=126&tid=134

Now if I just knew where to buy fava beans, my repast would be complete. They don't have them at the local bodega, perhaps I should try Whole Foods Market.

I wonder how much the recipient paid for that $1800 organ?

I wonder how long it will be before snopes has to change their page. Oddly, this is the first thing I though of when I read this.

So this is how we get Rho a new one!



juju  Saturday Aug 23 08:12 PM

I bet you could if you'd be willing to risk letting foreign doctors do the operation. Could be risky, though.



xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Aug 24 10:26 AM

That strike's me as pretty funny, Juju. If you'd be willing to use foreign Doctors, there's no reason to leave Philly. It's full of them.



elSicomoro  Sunday Aug 24 11:29 AM

Yeah, but you have to pay American prices.



dave  Monday Aug 25 07:49 AM

Snopes won't change the page, I would imagine, because the situation in question still hasn't happened.

Don't forget the nice Chianti.

Now I know why Osama bin Laden is still kicking.

I have five kidneys now. I'm indestructible!
