The program, which has seen Iran’s waitlist for kidneys effectively drop to zero, has been championed by some Western doctors as a way to cut time for lifesaving transplants. However, some ethicists worry about the system taking advantage of the poor worldwide to black-market organ sales. (AP Photo/Ebrahim Noroozi)
