The Islamic Republic of Iran’s corruption-plagued economy coupled with political mismanagement is compelling Iranians to sell their vital organs, according to media reports.

The Washington-based Iran International news outlet reported Thursday “With the deepening economic crisis and skyrocketing inflation, the sale of body organs abroad is reaching alarming levels in Iran, local media warns. Organ trafficking has become a major problem with people selling kidneys, liver, cornea, bone marrow, sperm, and ovum out of poverty.”

The Iranian daily paper Jahan-e-Sanat said on Thursday some middlemen send prospective donors to neighboring countries such as the United Arab Emirates, Turkey, and Iraq to sell their body parts for $7,000 to $15,000.
