After spending 16 years urging legal reform that would permit compensation for organ donation in order to increase the supply of transplant organs, I have decided to reverse course. I will now decrease the supply of organs by one donor - myself - and hopefully by many more. Why this radical change in direction? Because my efforts to change the law and increase the supply of organs have proved fruitless and there is little that I or anyone else can add to the argument for employing a market incentive to increase organ donation.
