A Whole Family Sells Kidneys

"Nassem Kausar has done it. So, she says, have her sister, six brothers, five sisters-in-law and two nephews." - appears in CNN. What did Nassem Kausar do? What did her members of family do? They have all learned to survive on single kidney. They have sold their other kidney for money. "We do this because of our poverty," said Kausar. A kidney nets the donor $2,500, sometimes less than half that amount, while recipients -- some 2,000 a year -- pay $6,000 to $12,000, compared with $70,000 in neighboring China. Critics blame an economic system that enmeshes farmers in chronic debt, forcing them to sell their kidneys, and say the trade should be banned. The government says it is taking action. The complete news can be read at CNN.
