My mom said how she would never donate anything because the way we come into the world is the way we go it. Her dad, my grandpa was diagnosed with Diabetes and was in dire need of a kidney. He went through dialyses, and he got through it, he was just waiting for his kidney match. Just to put it in perspective over one-hundred thousand people are waiting for an organ transplant in the U.S. alone. When my mom saw my grandpa get better and see how he recovered her whole mindset changed on donating your organs because she saw that you can give someone a second chance, that you can help someone’s family and you wouldn’t even know it.
Organ Donation: A Gift Not a Requirement The topic of organ donation has become a hot topic over the last few years. As the number of those requiring organ transplants steadily grows, the number of those registered to donate organs remains insufficient. Although according to HealthCorps (2016), 95 percent of Americans would agree to organ donation, only 52 percent registered as organ donors. With the continued high demand for organ donations and the limited supply, it is not surprising that there were judgments made about those who decline to register to become organ donors. Some have even been labeled selfish for refusing to register as organ donors.
There are many myths that people still believe about organ donation. Many of these myths come from television, movies, and ignorance. There are certain things that can stop me from being an organ donor such as age, illness or physical defects. Each person’s medical condition is assessed at the time of death to determine which organs and tissues are usable for donation. People living with incurable diseases or those who have a history of cancer or other deadly diseases are still encouraged to join and register for organ donation.
It is about 45 percent that American adults are registered on the donors list. Just 45 percent in American are organ donors. Reason is, because many people think if you are on the transplant list and dying on the hospital bed they will just kill you anyways because you’re an organ donor. Organ transplants are an important tool for medical field. They are major concerns with organ donation as precise solutions.
“I 'm alive today because a family in Ohio turned their tragedy into a miracle. Life should be a relay.” (Through Organ Donation) This woman got her second chance because someone donated. These transplants offer many people the possibility of a redo, to their already failing life. It also offers them to be able to do things that they’ve never done before. She uses the example of a relay, meaning people should be able to have their turn to take a run around
The number of people on the waiting list is increasing every day. You probably think that 84,000 aren’t that many people, compared to the U.S. population which is close to 300 million, but what if it’s your friends and family on the organ transplatwaiting list? There might be somebody you know on the waitning list for organ transplatation. The people on the waiting list need new organs, which mean they need our help, because there are not enough organ donors, people willing give up there organs when the die and willing to make organ donation possible. Every 16 minutes, a new name is added to the transplatation watitinglist.
However, donation involves asking ethical questions because the treatment affects not only the people in need of transplants but also the individuals who donate. The main reason why people may consider donating organs is because of the very great benefit that this can bring to others. On the other hand, some find the idea of organ donation too invasive. Those people believe that it is wrong to take organs from people. The decision to or not to donate is a moral decision.
Paige Hillman Mrs. Johnson English 9 20 March 2018 Organ Transplantation Although many people believe organ donations are unethical and donors are not a priority when in need of care, but organ donation is very ethical and every patient receives the same care, if more people were willing to donate organs it would save many lives; therefore, people should be encouraged to donate, and others should spread the word. Organ transplants are becoming more popular and common throughout the United States and can be seen in many different forms such as a liver, kidney, lung, pancreas, heart, but due to the shortage of organs available, many are still on the list of those in need of an organ. Because of this, “Each day, about 77 people get an organ
Moreover, there are arguments on whether those that have a non-healthy lifestyle such as smoking and drinking should be given chances for transplantation of organ. Although there should be no one that can determine the life of anyone, there is some ethicist claim that it is vital to decide a person's individual value for organ transplant.  Rate of success is also one of the issue for the waiting list of organ transplant. The issue is the way of viewing the likelihood of success on patients, whether it is based on how long the patient can lives after the transplant, or based on other factors? Every patient's life is as precious as one another, regardless of the age and gender, they should deserve the same treatment.
We can still help others that who has a chance to survive. Even though we are no longer in the world, at least we can help others to live in the world and our family members will be gratified. Become an organ donor not only can save people’s live but also can comfort the grieving family. “The value of life is not in its duration, but in its donation. You are not important because of how long you live, you are important because of how effective you live” by Myles Munroe.
