Recently I learnt that a man stole the kidney of his wife, he was a Egyptian man-body parts are being sold very highly in black markets, many patints are dying because they cant find organ donors, do you see a time in future whaen body parts will be sold in shops, things like livers, heart valves, muscles, male organs, breasts, hearts, lungs etc?

Oh my! I don't think that would be impossible in the next 5 or so years! I just hope that it wouldn't push through though.... people might make money by stealing body organs of living people! That's bad....

People including children killed to get their organ that is already already happening. It is forbidden in Europe to sell organs It should be the same all over the world with emprisonment if one is catched doing so.

I wish the idea of a body part shop should be on the basisi of willing buyer willing seller-stealing body parts is very cruel!

well i doubt they will be legal anyway because who would want to see their own being killed and teared into various parts for sale .

I think there is a good possibility for it. The world is changing so quickly and technology is booming. It wouldn't surprise me any to start seeing this in the near future.
