Do you really think that you're in a position to choose an action like this?
Well, yes. I would like to believe that I've made a rational choice given my current circumstances.
Well, first, that's pretty paternalistic. You, a white, well-off, woman telling me that rationality is a privilege that can only be exercised by the privileged?!
Exactly, but that's why you cannot fully exercise "choice" because of your economic constraints! How is that a "choice" then?!
And how does illegalising the kidney market suddenly change that system? It just means that you're cutting down my options of gaining wealth.
No, that's not how I meant it... What I mean is that given today's society, you're just becoming a pawn in a neoliberally-rigged game. You're being exploited!
But doesn't it bother you that you'll never be the receiver or benefactor of such a trade? Your body will always just be a resource!
Well, technically speaking, the cost of a kidney is typically less than dialysis treatment, so it's more in my reach!
I fail to see how I'm being stripped of my "rights" in a society comprised of natural possessive individualism and rights, because then I'm the sole proprietor of my body and everything I create from it. I should be able to choose whatever I choose to do with them.
Okay, but in an ideal society, are you seriously okay with being stripped of your rights and your body being reduced to a mere resource?
Sounds more like an ultimatum game you're playing here and you're willingly taking the lowest payout.
