Organ sales and paternalism

By Gerald Dworkin

Abstract

Simon Rippon believes that a certain argu-ment is not sound.1 I agree. I do not agree with the role he assigns the argu-ment in the debate about organ sales. Nor do I agree with the much stronger argu-ment he puts forward that organ sales should be forbidden. The argument he believes unsound, which I shall use his terminology to refer to as the Laissez-Choisir or LC argument, has three premises. The one be believes false says, “If we take away what some regard as their best option, we thereby make them worse off, at least from their own perspective”
