Organ Transplants & Health Care

Can I sell my organs?

A Answers (1)

  • No, you cannot sell your organs. The National Organ Transplant Act (Public Law 98-507) makes it illegal to sell human organs and tissues in the United States. Violators are subject to fines and imprisonment. The Congress made this law to ensure that the wealthy do not have an unfair advantage for obtaining donated organs and tissues.
