Organ Donation, only two hundred one thousand, four hundred and fifty-nine people are registered at death since 1988 and only one hundred fifty-two thousand and ninety people were living donors since 1988. Compared to the amount of people who died with organs that are donatable, that 's not much and the amount of living donors compared to the amount of living people right now is three hundred twenty-five million, seven hundred sixty-two thousand, seven hundred and ten the amount of living donors is only 21.4190748899% of the population. It seems many people that can donate don’t know all the facts of organ donation. Even though some people believe stuff they view on television, television writers usually over exaggerate things. 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.
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. The purpose of this task is to incorporate the Ottawa
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.
Organ donation is currently the only successful way of saving the lives of patients with organ failure and other diseases that require a new organ altogether. According to the U.S Department of Health and Human Services there is currently 122,566 patients both actively and passively on the transplant list. 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. When you become an organ donor, you can saves the lives up to eight people. Controversy surrounds this option for many reasons, and some do not find this option to be ethical but most believe it is what God’s calls us to do. The Catholic sees it as love and charity.
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.
Donating organs abides as genuinely impactful on its own, yet a few believe that organs should be sold. Both arguments demand the same outcome to acquire as bountiful 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 fundamental problem with selling/ buying organs results in the financial hierarchy; whoever has the money receives the organ and this cannot be the deciding factor, on who obtains one, which allows for opportunities. Opportunities come in all forms and as defined in the dictionary resides as “a good position, chance, or prospect, as for advancement or success” (“Dictionary”, n.d.). Both occupy considerable ideas that once again

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. The effects and outcomes from those in need of a transplant are quite impressive. As of August 2017, 116,000 men, women, and children were on the national transplant waiting list.
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
When you are asked if you want to be an organ donor, why say no? People die everyday because of the lack of people becoming organ donors. Everyone should be an organ donor if they qualify. Organ donation is the process of removing organs from a donor to a recipient who needs it to live. Many people around the world are waiting on a list while they are suffering, and could be for years to follow because there aren’t enough donors for the number of recipients. Right now there are 115,429 people waiting for organs. We could be saving more lives then we are today by simply requiring organ donation.

There are arguments against Kidney organ sale that should be considered. A. Religious sectors condemn kidney sale.
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.
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. This paper presents the discussion on kidney organ sale as improper in five parts. First part provides an overview on kidney organ sale.
Mezrich and Scalea describe the wishes of an ALS patient who wants to donate his organs before he dies. Mezrich and Scalea consider the risks of the hospital shutting down its transplant center and operating on a weakened patient. They recount the history of organ transplantation, and examine ethical and legal concerns while advocating for a new model of organ donation. They depict their second thoughts on not performing the procedure, while pondering what the results would be.
