The arguments for and against donation of organs to illegal immigrants are tough to stomach for both sides because one way or another the person not getting the donation can die. There is also the financial side of it, where illegal immigrants must secure donations in order to afford it, there are a couple examples in the book that shows the need for money in order to get donated to as an illegal. The first is the son of a butcher, Leonardo Sanchez, who needed $250,000 in order to get a transplant, so his father brought him to the U.S. in order to receive treatment(Chavez,115). Another case about Edgar Gutierrez shows that money is a necessity in order to receive a organ donation as he got financial backing from a CNN executive and a retired pilot(Chavez,115). Something that I feel isn’t realized when people donate to causes like these, is that their donations are providing someone who isn’t a citizen to receive an organ that could and most likely would have gone to a U.S. citizen. One who is paying or is going to pay taxes, one who belongs to United States of America and didn’t just cross a border. While yes it’s a tragedy that these illegal immigrants are coming into the country just to receive treatment that isn't available or is even harder to require in their native country, it’s wrong that they are getting organs over citizens of the U.S. . They, as
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.
Thesis statement: The problem of organ shortage is a very serious now. More and more people are waiting for organs to continue their lives. We have the responsibilities to understand the situation and give a hand to solve the problem.

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.

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.
Imagine being on a national organ transplant list and have been given a choice. Do you want a human organ or an animal organ? Yes, Xenotransplantation is a large medical breakthrough, but it come with a tremendous amount of risk involved. Animal organs are not meant to be in a humans body. Therefore, human organs should be used for people on the donation list instead of Xenotransplantation. Xenotransplantation should not be tolerated because Organ Rejection, Ethics and Survival Rates.
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.
Walter Payton, former Bears running back, had died from a form of liver cancer. Even though his doctors were very optimistic about his condition in the past, he still died from primary sclerosing cholangitis. Per the Baltimore Sun, primary sclerosing cholangitis is an autoimmune disorder in which the immune system attacks its own tissues and scars the bile ducts. His physicians couldn’t believe that the problems he had from the liver disease would quickly kill a man with his physical abilities. Doctors at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., diagnosed Payton with a side effect that caused his ducts to drain bile from his liver. Once the cancer set in doctors couldn’t do much to save him.
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.
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

There are many valid points as to why mandatory organ donations should not be legal, such as it is their body, and in America, we have a human right to our own bodies and what we do with it. But isn’t the biggest human right, the right to life? We have a human right to be alive. “One organ donor can save up to 8 lives.” (Learn the Facts) Who is anyone to take the right of life from someone, just because you are being selfish and have no beneficial use for your organs, when someone is dying because they need an organ of yours? I have to agree, that if organ donations did become legal, it would change the underlying meaning of organ donations, it wouldn’t be because you truly want to help people. But even if you don’t have a choice, you would still be saving someone’s life, which is heroic. We should have compassion for people, because we never know if that could be us one
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.
The human organ selling market is often controversial. The idea of fighting for one 's country and dying could be considered heroic but in relevance to living or dead organ market, many individuals are discussed. The thought of selling a friend or family members vitals could seem horrid but also leaving their bodies to decompose could possibly be a waste of material that could have been tested to cure the disease that may have killed them. If one can sell or donate blood or plasma, what 's to say they could also sell an organ. Also, in relevance to the living and dead, if that individual does not need it then why would it be considered negative to make profit on it. Whether someone believes in the marketing of human organs or not, one must factor in the positives and negatives of the economic growth, medical benefits, and resourcing that is found when having human organs become a good to buy and sell.
