People might be more willing to donate a kidney if they were paid for it, according to a new survey.

Paying for organs is illegal in the U.S. But researchers say that given how many people die waiting for kidneys each year, the results suggest that compensation “must be seriously considered.”

“The gap between the number of organs and the number of lives lost has grown and grown,” said lead author Dr. Thomas Peters, of the University of Florida College of Medicine in Jacksonville.
