The Organ Trade in Dirty, Pretty Things
by AdrianFohr `

This scene deals with the illegal organ trade. In most (if not all) countries buying and selling internal organs is illegal. However, one doctor defends the trade, saying that it makes all parties better off. Some economists have gone so far as to say that it should be legal to buy and sell internal organs.

This Commentary is related to the following Clips:
The Guts to Sell by Stephen Frears (2002) In this scene, two doctors are discussing the illegal organ trade. One doctor is feeling coerced into working in the organ trade because he is an immigrant and having trouble adapting.
