Post-Human Ethics, Global (in)Justice, and the Transplant Trade in Organs
This chapter presents a global analysis of the phenomenon referred to as “transplant tourism.” It describes how patients with the financial capability procure organ transplants illegally from abroad. The globalization of organ and tissue markets highlights how the economic inequities that propelled Jesica and her family to travel to the United States in search of health care also encouraged other poor people of the world into selling their organs.
