Letter: Kidneys for sale

Sir: The sublime logic of the International Forum for Transplant Ethics (sic) is irrefutable. A normal life is possible with only one kidney. Some people manage with fewer than the normal number of fingers, toes, breasts or even arms and legs. No doubt medical science will, some time, make it possible to transplant these, too. Or what about eyes, ears or testicles? Perhaps the sale of these might be "the best option poverty has left". Might help to solve the population problem at the same time.
