Kidneys For Sale

An Israeli citizen living in Brooklyn, NY admitted to brokering three illegal kidney transplants for $120,000 each. The FBI caught him when he was trying to organize another black market kidney sale.

“Rosenbaum admitted he was not new to the human kidney business when he was caught brokering what he thought was a black market deal,” U.S. Attorney Fishman said. “A black market in human organs is not only a grave threat to public health, it reserves lifesaving treatment for those who can best afford it at the expense of those who cannot. We will not tolerate such an affront to human dignity.”

It is amazing to me what people will do for money. That's terrible to take advantage of those who are in need of an organ to survive. People are laying on their death beds praying they will get a kidney in time and Rosenbaum and people like him are skipping right over the ones who are next in line and going to the one who has the money to pay them to get a kidney.

When I sit and watch the news or read the news, I am in shock sometimes what this world has come to. Funny thing about so much of what goes on, you don't see some of this stuff on the news and it makes you wonder why. Does our government not want the American people to know what has become of this country? The United States has become a place that has gone crazy. People will do anything for money and the value of life means very little. Now, you hear about all the crazy stuff going on with the Occupy Wall Street, a war hero was severely injured right here in the United States during a protest by a police officer. He survived the war, to come home and be practically killed by the police in his own country. You don't even see our government doing too much to improve the situation. We have become a country were the sex slave trade industry and drug trade has become the most profitable business in the entire United States. The government has lost control of the country. You want to think it can only get better from here, but it only seems to be getting worse from here. This is the world our children our are growing up in, I am scared to think what it will be for them when they reach adulthood and shutter to think what it will be for their children when they have children.
