There is no reason to BLOCK the payment for bone marrow donors.

As long as someone is donating a 'replenishable' bodily item (blood, semen, marrow, etc.), and not selling an actual organ, there should be nothing to prevent compensation for the donation.

Encouraging more people to donate marrow could potentially save many, many lives that are now being lost due to the lack of donations.

The Obama Administration is wrong to block this issue.
