Do you think organ donations is good idea? Well in the book “The House of the Scorpion” and the movie “My Sister’s Keeper.” Humans are created to use for organs donations. My opinion is that organ transplant should not be allow for many reason. Many people are marketing illegal kidney. So how they getting them?
Throughout the article “Organ Sales Will Save Lives”, her thesis statement is clear. Joanne believes that people should be allowed to donate their kidneys even if people believe that it is “morally wrong.” Throughout her entire article she restates her opinion that people should be able to sell kidney’s without consequences. In the article, she states why people believe that it shouldn’t be legal as well as people who do believe that it should be legal. Most people believe that it shouldn’t be legal for one reason, that it is morally wrong. She states several reasons why she believes that it should be legal. She believes that people should be able to donate their organs, as long as they know the side effects and the consequences before following through with the surgery.
Patients on the waiting list are in end-stage organ failure and have been evaluated by a transplant physician at hospitals in the U.S. where organ transplants are performed. Policies that dictate organ allocation are created and revised through a consensus-building process that involves UNOS committees and a board of directors, all composed of transplant physicians, government officials, specialists in immunology and experts in organ donation, as well as donor families, transplant recipients and members of the general public. Specifics of waiting list rules vary by organ.² The time patients spend on the heart transplant waiting list can last anywhere from days to months, and in some cases years, depending on listing status. The availability of a donor with matching blood type and body size also affects the wait time.
In Joanna MacKay's article, 'Organ Selling Will Save Lives", sides with the legalization of organ selling, due to her main focus she emphasizes on kidney failure. In ignorance of government, patients all over the globe are dying on the wait for a kidney transplant.She presents her ideas that government should not prohibit the sale of organs. She writes "lives shouldn’t be wasted they should be saved". Her thesis is understandable and she supports it with good reasons.
In the United States alone, 19 people die every day waiting on an organ transplant that could have saved their lives. The only solution to this problem is getting more drivers registered as organ donors. It has been proposed that the states automatically register their drivers as donors and it is up to the drivers to go through the procedure of opting out if that is what they wish. I agree with this proposal because you still have the freedom to make your choice but most people would not want to go through the process of opting out, so the number of organ donors would be greatly increased.
Kevorkian (2009) asserted that there are five to six thousand people die every year waiting for organs, but nobody worries. Experiencing this instance creates a great impact on the country’s economic status. This situation is where the organ trade emanated from. Organ trade is the substitution of human organs with money for the aim of transplantation. To place it plainly, it is the buying and marketing of human organs. In line with this is the transplant tourism. Transplant tourism is the state of travelling overseas for the purpose of undergoing an organ transplant. Going overseas, particularly to third world countries, have its benefits. These include the cheaper price of operation, the abundant supply of organs and the masses that are willing to make up their organs for profit. Moreover, the United Network for Organ Sharing (1984) delineates transplant tourism as the commercialism of organ transplantation abroad, which includes access to
Imagine your child needs a heart transplant. If she gets it in time, she’ll live a long, healthy life. Without it, your child has, at most, one year to live. The article “Why Legalizing Organ Sales Would Help Save Lives, End Violence” published in The Atlantic on November 11, 2011, written by Anthony Gregory, claims that organ sales should be legalized because many people die on the transplant list before they can get an organ. Gregory gives an insight on some of the benefits of organ transplants and how in some countries, it is legal for people to sell their organs. The text is directed toward medical personnel because it causes them to question, “what if”, organ sales legalized or what would they gain from this legalization? His article is also directed towards people in need of an organ, and organ donors. Gregory is successful when he uses logical, emotional and ethical tactics to persuade his audience on why organ sales would be beneficial.
Organ donation definition: it takes healthy organs and tissues from one person(the donor) for transplantation into another(the recipient).
The process of donation most often begins with your consent to be a donor by registering in your state. Signing up does not guarantee you will be able to donate your organs, eyes, or tissues but it is the first step to being eligible to save lives. For someone to become a deceased donor, he or she has to die in very specific circumstances. Once a person dies, the hospital notifies the local Organ Procurement Organization (OPO) to see if the patient that died can donate. The OPO matches the organs to the best-matched patient. While the search for matching recipients is under way, the deceased donor's organs are maintained on artificial support. Machines keep blood containing oxygen flowing to the organs. When the transplantation is about to happen, the surgical team removes the organs and tissues from the donor's body in an operating room. First, the organs are recovered and then all the incisions are surgically
In the article, "Organ Sales Will Save Lives," by Joanne MacKay, is an informative essay that appeals to a readers emotions by raising awareness that there are thousands of people in the world that are in need of life-saving organs, specifically kidneys. MacKay does a fantastic job capturing the readers’ attention by describing the grueling dialysis treatments patients suffer from End Stage Renal Disease and the lengthy wait for a cadaver kidney donation. Unhappy with these options, many patients opt for a third choice which leads them into the pit which is known as the black market. MacKay’s description of the black market has the reader visualizing a run down slum with the surgery being done in a small filthy back room. The reason a patient
The act Donating Organs, either prior to death or after death, is considered by many to be one of the most generous, selfless and worthwhile decisions that one could make. The decision to donate an organ could mean the difference of life or death for a recipient waiting for a donor. Organ donations offer patients new chances at living more productive, healthy and normal lives and offers them back to families, friends and neighborhoods.
There are many ethical issues facing health care at any time and it is impossible to say definitively which is the most pressing or the most important. Health care professionals are expected to base their practice on a set of ethical principles, including truthfulness, beneficence, nonmaleficence, justice, and confidentiality. Ethical issues can arise, however, when a l professional is called upon to act in opposition to personal values or in cases where the values of patient, health care worker, and sponsoring institution conflict. The following issues are presented in no order.
The selling of human organs under U.S law is illegal for many reasons. By having bids on life or death situations can have a negative effect on people with low to no income waiting for an organ. The only lawful procedure for someone to receive an organ transplant as of now is to be placed on a waiting list. Human organs that are sold is considered human trafficking because it is the process of selling or transferring human tissue by force (National Institute of Justice, 2007). The selling of human organs is not only illegal but unethical, in many cases unsafe, and it is very biased against lower class.
Imagine if you were in need of a transplant and was waiting for the day when you found your donor match. Many recipients are stuck on the waitlist for a donor and sometimes even pass away because the waitlist took too long. To avoid this issue, a few ideas or systems should be considered in order to make the process quicker. Currently organ donations only consist of hair, blood plasma, and sperm and egg. Since removing your kidney is a riskier procedure than donating your hair, receiving money for the process will influence people to donate. Adding kidneys to the accepted list of organ sales can cause an uproar both good and bad, but may overall benefit those in need. The process of organ donations in the United States is an unstable procedure, but with the improvement in the system black markets can be stopped, awareness can be improved, and more lives will be saved.
