According to evolutionary theory, altruism shouldn’t exist. Natural selection favors adaptations that increase fitness, an individual’s ability to survive and reproduce. Altruism does the opposite.

Neurobiologists have found that altruism makes us feel good. Specifically, the brain’s reward and pleasure centers light up when one actively participates in an act of altruism. This suggests that altruism isn’t simply part of a social norm.

Rather, it embodies something psychological. Singer, in this book, doesn’t shy away from that implication—not a strategy likely to win friends and influence people.

These problems are practical, rather than moral, in nature. But for a movement dedicated to effective altruism, they are important.

It can easily be read as saying that the altruistic acts of organ donors are not moral. But the article does not argue this. It argues that mere altruism is not enough for organ donation. A more accurate title would be something like "When Altruism Isn't Enough".Why resilience isn't enough in the face of a global pandemic.
