This number will continue to increase, in fact, every ten minutes another person is added to the list. Unfortunately, twenty-two of these people die while waiting for an organ on a daily basis. Each day, about eighty Americans receive a lifesaving organ transplant. We need a way to save these lives, and we have one: Organ donation.

Despite advances in medicine and technology, and increased awareness of organ donation and transplantation, there continues to be a gap between supply and demand.

The argument of whether organ donors should be compensated for their efforts has become a heated topic. The two sides of the argument have equally valid points, but one must look to the benefit of not only the organ recipients, but also to the donors and to their well-being. There are more ways than one to get the desired organs, not all of them legal in the least. The exploitation of the poor that would accompany the choice of paying people for organ donation would most likely be devastating. Ultimately, organ donation should remain a gift between the donor and the recipient to reduce the chance of exploitation of any participants.

Unit 1: Organ Donation Name: Kayden Mataafa Class: HED121A Introduction Organ donation within Australia is something society neglects, many barriers prevent Australians from knowing about donation, and how to go about donating. Organ donation is a life-saving and life-transforming medical process. Organ and tissue donation involves removing organs and tissues from someone who has died (a donor) and transplanting them into someone who, in many cases, is very ill or dying (a recipient) (Donatelife.gov.au, 2018). A donor within Australia cannot decide individually on whether they can or want to donate, in the end the family are always the final deciders in matters regarding organ donation.

Donating organs is very impactful on its own, yet some believe that organs should be sold. Both arguments want the same outcome to get as many individuals as possible the organs they need in order to maintain a normal life. The difference here lies in the format one receives/buys their organs. The main problem with selling/ buying organs comes down to the financial hierarchy; who ever has the money gets the organ and this cannot be the deciding factor, on who get to receive one, which allows for opportunities. Opportunities come in all forms and as defined in the dictionary as “a good position, chance, or prospect, as for advancement or success” (“Dictionary”, n.d.). Both are great ideas that once again want the same outcome yet one makes this dream a reality for a greater population of individuals reaching more and more people. Donating organs has plenty of benefits not only for the recipient but the donor as well. Organ donations in the United States are opportunities that can give others hope, the will to keep moving forward, and faith in mankind.

An exceedingly criticized phenomenon has been widely debated upon in different parts of the world. Kidney organ sale is the selling of one’s kidney primarily for financial provisions. It has been increasing since the demand for kidney for transplantation has escalated. It is seen as a practice with religious, ethical, political and practical issues. On the other hand, people who favor kidney organ sale see it as a beneficial and altruistic custom not only because of its monetary purposes but also because of its life saving intentions. An examination of the study reveals complex safety health issues on the donor and recipient, lack of moral justifications, spiritual conflicts, and violation of constitutional rights. This includes the preferable choice of donation rather than sale. It can, therefore, be concluded that kidney organ sale is improper taking into consideration religious, ethical, political and practical concerns and principles.
However, donation involves asking ethical questions because the treatment affects not only the people in need of transplants but also the individuals who donate. The main reason why people may consider donating organs is because of the very great benefit that this can bring to others. On the other hand, some find the idea of organ donation too invasive. Those people believe that it is wrong to take organs from people. The decision to or not to donate is a moral decision.
Ronald Faison Eng-106 February 20, 2018 Professor MaryBeth Nipp Definition Argument Essay The selling of human organs under U.S law is illegal for many reasons.
