These laws that have been created is beneficial to the rich. The ones responsible creating these policies are the ones who want the lower class to suffer to gain money. Peace is granted to the upper class because of the power they have ignoring the poor. The state needs wealthy allies to become powerful and richer which the laws that are created limit the poor having no access to
The available supply of transplantable organs in the United States is insufficient in supplying the current demand. Alternative options towards the restricted use of organs specifically from neurologically deceased individuals are the use of live organ donors, foreign transplantations, and financial incentives. These alternative options raise many bioethical concerns such as the ethicality of recruitment methods and the immense risk of post-surgery complications. The shortage in organs donors will be amended with the use of these solutions regardless of the ethical concerns that they will
Organ donation happens worldwide and can save many lives. When choosing to become an organ donor only certain organs can be donated. Organ transplants tend to be very expensive but, there is no price for a life. Tons of young and old people need these transplants and continuously wait on a list till it is their turn. People can donate organs before and after death but some organ transplants cause people to need additional hospitalization.
The recipient might have different religion, political, or ethical viewpoints that a donor may disagree with, but if the person has the opportunity to save a life then these issues should not stand in the way. Becoming an organ donor is the most beneficial decision because it saves and improves many lives, it helps family members grieve, and it decreases organ sales. Becoming an organ donor gives patients another chance to live or improve the quality at which they live, which is why it is so important to choose to become a donor. Brian Hansen, a writer from New York City, wrote an article, “Organ Shortage,” and states, “In 2001, at least 6,251 Americans died while waiting for an organ — more than twice the number killed in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks” (Hansen 156). Thousands of people are sitting hopelessly while their family and friends watch them die.
The positive impact of xenotransplantation is that it can save countless lives, even though there are many risks involved, as time goes on scientists will develop safe methods posing less risks. Another positive impact it can pose on society is that it may decrease the demand of organs in the black market, the rate in which demand for organ increases it increases in the black market as well. It is reported that a plethora of criminal organizations take advantage of this and kill to acquire organs and sell to people at higher prices. Legalizing xenotransplantation can decrease the demand for organs, in turn decrease the uses of black market
Can the patient survive after the transplant and have improved quality of life? Does age or advancement of the disease process affect the decision? These are all vital questions to consider ethically. For instance, there might be a time when a decision has to be made whether a prisoner receives an organ transplant over a law-abiding citizen. In the process of organ allocation,
Introduction: Organ transplantation is a relatively new field of interest in medicine and it is only over the past century that many breakthroughs in organ transplantation have been made (). Organ transplantation has enabled people who have been diagnosed with organ failure and have an increasingly degenerating bodily component (organ) to regain the functionality of their body by having another person’s organ implanted into them (Waldby C. 2002. Page 239), offering the potential to enhance and save a life (Haddow G. 2005, pg 92). This incorporation of an outer body component into the organ receiver’s body is not simply a biomedical issue, involving biological factors and medical procedures performed in an often surgical fashion, but also a
Professional athletes are overpaid because they do not provide society with an essential function that improves or strengthens our world, in comparison to other professionals such as medical doctors, lawyers, and teachers. These athletes are also getting paid millions of dollars for jobs that they only do for a certain number of games over the course of a few months, whereas other professions require long work hours over the course of an entire year. Professional athletes do not deserve to be paid millions of dollars for a job that they only do for a few months in a year and for a job that
As a contemporary debate, people and/or their family sometimes can be indifferent on donating their/family members ' organs. This persuasion is an ongoing issue since organ donation is used on survival of humans as the medicine knowledge of humanity increases. Organ donation is much likely linked to social psychology 's topics. As we would like to run a campaign to convince people, elaboration likelihood model (ELM) is going to be a really helpful theory on persuasion towards organ donation. The Elaboration Likelihood Model (ELM) of persuasion is a dual process theory describing how attitudes form and change.
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 United States should be an opt-in system instead of an opt-out system and if anything help people change their minds and become either live donors or donors when they pass-away with facts, common misconceptions, and myths. There are many facts about organ donation that many people do not know. In Australia they use an opt-out system meaning everyone is an organ donor at death this keeps the organ donation waiting list really low at only one thousand, five hundred people at any one time while the USA has an opt-in system meaning you ask to be put in and at any one time seventy-four
Majority of the doctors complain about working more hours in order to get the system up and running properly. Some executives and head leaders and department managers can help in impending EHR. I think that hiring a Chief Medical Officer part-time temporarily would help in getting the new system up and running. Pay physicians Qualified Health care professionals and hospitals could receive incentives for using EHR and proving significant use of Electronic Health Records Technology System. ("CMS.gov," “n.d”.)
