Organs harvesting can be a currency to exploit a person. Most often kidneys and livers are removed from people’s bodies, to sell illegally in organized crime.

Complicated circumstances can lead to the harvesting of organs. For example, when an ill person is being nursed and operated on, regardless of whether an operation was necessary, and an organ removed without the knowledge of the person. A person can also agree to sell an organ but doesn’t get a full price after the operation, or no pay.
