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 today 's society, people have a choice whether or not they want to be an organ donor, but many people die each day waiting for a perfect match. Though death is a tragic event, many people can benefit from it. Organ Donation should be required because an increase in donations can save a numerous amount of lives, inform the public about the science, and lower the statistical numbers in America.
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.
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.

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.

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.

It could very much be you, or your loved one, or a friend, considering over 121,272 in 2013 alone were waiting on organ donations. (Learn the Facts) The problem is that organ donation, or the lack of, is becoming a major issue. But the chance of this being you, and the outrageous number of people on the waiting list could be greatly diminished if the people in our state weren’t so ignorant and selfish, and voted yes on the legalization of mandatory organ donation when they passed.
