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. Although there are valid reasons people say no to it, but there are many more reasons to be a donor.
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.
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. There are many facts about organ donation that many people do not know. In Australia they use an opt-out system meaning everyone is an organ donor at death this keeps the organ donation waiting list really low at only one thousand, five hundred people at any one time while the USA has an opt-in system meaning you ask to be put in and at any one time seventy-four
According to Donate life, an organization that promotes organ donation, only 51% of the population are organ donors. People are not informed and educated enough about organ donation when it’s not implied. In the book Nudge which discusses “Improving Decisions about Health, Wealth, and Happiness,” Richard H. Thaler states “The concrete steps necessary to register as an organ donor appear to deter otherwise willing donors from registering,” (178). So Presumed Consent would enforce the amount of organs being donated to increase, and educate people in the process. If only 51% of the United States population are donors, than Presumed Consent would increase the percentages of organ donors. Which would later cause the amount of organs being donated

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.

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
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.
These events have raised many ethical, moral and societal issues regarding supply, the methods of organ allocation, the use of living donors as volunteers including minors.² Due to the high costs of organ transplants, most patients use a combination of sources.

Many patients work with community fundraising groups to complete their transplant financial strategy.² The costs of an organ transplant will vary for each patient, based on insurance coverage, the type of transplant and the location of the transplant center. Patients will also have a lifetime of medical expenses for follow-up care and
More people are likely to donate if they would be rewarded so that they are helped just like the recipitant. She states that there are several donors in third world countries that would gladly give away their kidney’s for only the cost of $1,000. They are in such a desperate time they would sell their body parts, just to help their family survive. Another reason why organ sales should be legal is because it would stop the illegal trade of kidney’s.
On December 23 1954, the first successful living-related kidney transplant took place, taking the medical world by storm. Organ Transplants have been experimented with since the 1800s, but by the 20th century, they were finally successful.(U.S. Department of Health & Human Services). Despite the common controversy of organ transplants, the decision on whether they are ethical is ultimately up to the patient. For organ donor recipients, organ transplants are often a second chance at life. Some people spend their whole lives struggling with one part of their body, which is holding them back from their everyday lives.
