Are you depressed? Strapped for cash? Don’t have any children? Not sure what you have to contribute to society?
We have a solution for you!
Give real meaning to your life (and death) by cashing in your mentally ill brain to the E. Fuller Torrey Brain Trust. Pay off your debts or leave your loved ones some extra cash. They may just want to redecorate that back bedroom when you’re gone.
High-profile NamiDearests such as DJ Jaffe and other supporters of forced psychiatric drugging laws such as Kendra’s Law, believe that “this could be a way to get more brain tissue for schizophrenia research”. We agree.
Cadaver organ contracts are the brainchild of George Mason University economist and law professor Lloyd Cohen. Buying and selling human organs is against the law in this country, whether from live or dead bodies. Cohen believes this must change. His concise argument: “If you pay people for something, they will provide more of it.”
Cohen’s proposal to allow people to contract to sell their organs after they die, neatly gets around the main objection to legalizing the sale of organs: that poor people would be tempted to cut themselves open for cash. Like life insurance, the money would go to their heirs or a designated charity. Kidneys could sell for $5,000, he speculates. Lungs, possibly $35,000.
Your mentally brain? Priceless!
