Study: People would donate kidneys for payment

USA Today, March 31, 2010

Paying people for living kidney donations would increase the supply of the organs and would not result in a disproportionate number of poor donors, a study by researchers from the University of Pennsylvania and the Philadelphia Veterans Affairs Medical Center concludes. The study asked 342 participants whether they would donate a kidney with varying payments of $0, $10,000 and $100,000.
