It would be a good start because people that sell their blood often do so to get drug money.
Everyone knows that if you share needles you can get HIV among other serious diseases.
It's very different than donating an organ or even blood. People donate because they want to help, people sell their blood/organs for the money.
I think this whole brouhaha is over blood DONATION, not blood sales. I thought you meant that the HOSPITAL charged people for the blood (as they charge for all services they provide), and that you were referring to THAT as "sale of blood". I don't get the impression that any part of this subject involves blood "sales". If you oppose a black market of human tissue sales, I'm with you there, but stopping that will not address the uselessness of a ban involving donations.

None of that makes it ok. I think a good start would be to stop allowing the sale of blood.
I agree about the blood/plasma sales. I've seen what goes into those places.
