Bone Marrow Donors

A decision last week by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals would allow people to donate bone marrow.

Senior Fellow Greg Conko comments.

"[The decision is] great news for patients needing marrow transplants. And the non-profit Institute for Justice deserves a tremendous amount of applause for arguing the case. Unfortunately, the decision is far narrower in scope than it has been portrayed by some news outlets. And, although there is plenty here to celebrate, it neither 'deregulates the bone marrow market' nor paves the way for compensating organ donation more broadly."
