In brief: Mostly justified

There are hundreds of thousands of tissue transplants of various types performed throughout the globe.
There is an expense to collecting and properly handling these tissues and it is reasonable to have the recipient cover that cost. There is considerable ethical underpinnings about money for a donor, so this part of the debate is still open.
