I've blogged about this.

Mr Wang, Dr Huang, and Angrydoc have all blogged about it too.

This letter in today's ST Forum, together with several others, tells it from the viewpoint of the patient.

It's a tough call to make. As doctors, we tend to look at the world through rose-tinted glasses, where altruism is the best way to get things done (well, maybe not so much anymore in today's society). But till we can walk in the shoes of someone who is actually suffering through organ failure, are we equipped to moralize & lecture on what is right or wrong about $$$ being involved in organ transplants?

As I've said before, this needs to be looked at from different perspectives...
