Bodies for Sale: Ethics and Exploitation in the Human Body Trade
explores the philosophical and practical issues raised by
activities such as surrogacy and organ trafficking. Stephen
Wilkinson asks what is it that makes some commercial uses of the
body controversial, whether the arguments against commercial
exploitation stand up, and whether legislation outlawing such
practices is really justified. In Part One Wilkinson explains and
analyses some of the notoriously slippery concepts used in the body
commodification debate, including exploitation, harm and consent.
In Part Two he focuses on three controversial issues (the buying
and selling of human kidneys, commercial surrogacy, and DNA
patenting) outlining contemporary regulation and investigating both
the moral issues and the arguments for legal prohibition.
