Trope-a-Day: Organ Theft

Organ Theft: In almost all times and places, organlegging isn’t a reasonable proposition – usually, the window between inventing organ transplantation and organ cloning isn’t all that long, and most of the time, it takes place in the kind of scarcity economy that makes it perfectly possible to buy organs from willing sellers (or from penal institutions, for the less scrupulous), even if local prohibitionists mean you have to do it on the black market.

It’s occasionally extended by people stealing genemod organs or cybernetic implants to resell, but it’s still not exactly common.
