Woman Sells Body Parts To Survive And Pay The Rent

In this age of joblessness, cutbacks, and hard times, some people have been forced to take drastic steps to survive and to keep a roof over their head. But, are things so bad that you would have to sell your non-vital organs just to make that rent payment or keep the heat on?

A mother in Spain adopted the strategy of selling her body parts in order keep from being evicted from her home. The 44 year-old is selling one kidney, a lung, her corneas and a piece of her liver to help pay her bills.

“I just need to do what I can for my daughter—her life is what’s most important. I don’t care about my own any more,” she said,  “I started off trying to sell a kidney, but now I’m not just selling that. I’m also selling my corneas, one of my lungs and a piece of my liver. I will sell whatever piece of my body that someone wants to buy, and I am selling it out of desperation.”

Makes you wonder where we are headed in this world, doesn’t it? Drastic times call for drastic measures, but this one is a little too much for me.
