PERSUASIVE SPEECH ORGAN DONATION
How do you feel when you have to wait for something you really, really want? What if it was something you couldn’t live without? I will talk about organ donation and hope that you will take my veiws on organ donation on board and give someone the most amazing gift after you have passed away, the gift of life. At this moment in the US there are 84 000 U.S patients waiting for an organ transplant. 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. This means 90 people will be added to the waiting list during a day. How many people die in the USA per day then? Just in the USA it dies over 6000 people per day, which means that if every person in the USA donated their organs, we wouldn’t have a waiting list to organ transplantation in 14 days. As an organ donor you have the possibility to choose to donate the organs or tissues as you specify or any needed organs.

According to MacKay’s research, in the year 2000, “2,583 Americans died while waiting for a kidney transplant” (120) and according to Matas, “over 6% of waiting candidates die annually” (2007). "With over 60,000 people in line in the United States alone, the average wait for a cadaverous kidney is ten long years" (120). As the reader can see, MacKay is very credible with stating factual statistics in regards to the urgent need of kidney donations and she has Matas to back her up with similar statistics. These statistics show the reader that MacKay’s argument is a strong
Every 10 minutes, a new person is added to the organ transplant list (organdonor.gov). That’s 144 people each and every day. With the help of human cadavers, those 144 people can be helped and be given the opportunity to a more prolonged life. Mary Roach uses her book to inform people of this and uses different rhetorical devices to convince people to join in on the donation. Mary Roach has always had an interest in science related topics, whether she is experiencing it first hand or is writing about it.
An organ is so much more than a body part in fact it may even be a life line for some. Could you imagine selling your organs just to put food on the table? Joanna MacKay wrote "Organ Sales Will Save Lives,” which was published in 2016 in The Norton Field Guide to Writing with Readings by Richard Bullock. In this article MacKay argues that lives should be saved not wasted. MacKay helps build her credibility throughout this article with facts and statistics.
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.
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
The text is directed toward medical personnel because it causes them to question, “what if”, organ sales legalized or what would they gain from this legalization? His article is also directed towards people in need of an organ, and organ donors. Gregory is successful when he uses logical, emotional and ethical tactics to persuade his audience on why organ sales would be beneficial. Some logical tactics Gregory uses to persuade his audience is giving the number of how many people die waiting for a transplant. He states, “...there are only about 20,000
During the previous decades, society’s behavior with regard to organ donation remains reluctant. A survey showed that although people plainly accept to offer their organs for transplantation, when a person dies, his or her relatives often refuse donation. To be able
Student’s name: Damodar Uprety Date: 04/05/2017 Topic: Blood Donation Rhetorical Purpose: To persuade Specific Purpose: To inform my audience about the growing and never diminishing demand of human whole blood supply and to encourage or motivate them to be a regular blood donors to meet this demand with consistent supply at all times to save our fellow Americans who are in desperate need of blood transfusion. Thesis: The magnitude of blood demand is high in USA as well as the whole world; therefore all eligible donors should donate blood regularly, not only when it seems important enough. A pint of blood mean life to some and its absence mean their death.
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.
More than 120,000 people died last year while waiting for a donor, donation of organs costs nothing (“Why be an Organ Donor”). Becoming an organ donor opens up various options such as organ donation or body donation. Body donation is where the bodies will be given to universities or schools around America, where the students of medicine department will do research on the body to figure out why the organ failed (“Body Donor Program”). The body will not be presented to the public and after it is researched it will be cremated and returned to the family as ash 's (“Body Donor Program”). With that being said some of the organs will be perfect to donate, but some may not meet all the requirements for donation , such as correct blood types, free of sexually transmitted diseases, diabetes, and mental health issues ( "Saving Lives and Giving Hope by Reducing the Organ Waiting
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.
“Death with dignity is a human right: to retain control until the very end and, if the quality of your life is too poor, to decide to end your suffering; the dignity comes from exercising the choice.” says Jason Barber, whose wife, Kathleen Barber, died in his arms. He had one question in mind when she died. What was he going to say if someone asked him how she died? Whether she went peacefully? He decided to tell people that his wife died in peace, without any pain or suffering.
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. I believe that organ donation should be mandatory because, for the most important reason, would save many lives, help farther scientific research and knowledge in our state and also
If people have the right to live, then do they have the right to die? Is it okay to end someone’s life in order to end his/her pain and suffering? These are two of the biggest questions nowadays and I am here to take my stand on this issue. People are easily confused with this due to the fact that on one hand, we know that it is wrong to take a person’s life. On the other hand, it is difficult to see them suffering and in pain for a longer period of time.
