Do you think organ donations is good idea? Well in the book “The House of the Scorpion” and the movie “My Sister’s Keeper.” Humans are created to use for organs donations. My opinion is that organ transplant should not be allow for many reason. Many people are marketing illegal kidney. So how they getting them?
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.
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
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.
Throughout the article “Organ Sales Will Save Lives”, her thesis statement is clear. Joanne believes that people should be allowed to donate their kidneys even if people believe that it is “morally wrong.” Throughout her entire article she restates her opinion that people should be able to sell kidney’s without consequences. 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. She believes that people should be able to donate their organs, as long as they know the side effects and the consequences before following through with the surgery.
In the essay, “Organ Sales Will Saves Lives” Joanna MacKay elaborates that kidney failure is a major problem that has a possible, not so complex solution. Mackay believes that this issue could possibly be resolved if the legalization of organ sales were to be possible. In fact, her main argument throughout the essay is that government officials should not waste lives, but rather help save them by legalizing this process. Furthermore, she explains the dangers of the black market and how authorizing organ sales would benefit all parties involved. Overall, MacKay thoroughly claims that organ sales would ensure greatness for the recipient but also for the buyer; most importantly, she believed it would give someone a chance to continue living a
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.
Imagine if it was you, if it was you laying in a hospital bed, waiting for an organ donation and with each passing minute that you don’t receive one, you are getting closer to your final days. 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. 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
The article “Organ Sales and Moral Distress” is written by Eduardo Rivera-Lopez(2006). He explains his viewpoint regarding reasons provided forlegislating the permission of organ sales. He argues that political operators, in unjust organ sale situation are not qualified for (or have lost the moral authority to) offer either the Consequentialist or the Autonomy Argument for legalizing human organ sales. Eduardo Rivera López has a degree in Philosophy (University of Buenos Aires, 1989) and a PhD in Political Science (University of Mainz, Germany, 1994). He is the author of numerous books, among them: The moral assumptions of liberalism (1997), Essays on liberalism
Few would argue against the proposition that kidney transplantation is the most successful and least expensive mode of treating end-stage renal failure. Moreover, in some parts of the world today, transplantation is the sole treatment option. The need for organs is incontestable, but a serious shortage is being faced everywhere and it seems likely to persist until xenotransplantation becomes a realistic option. Thus, it seems rational that any practice which enhances the number of kidneys available for transplantation must be examined and regarded as beneficial unless it carries with it overriding bad consequences. The burden lies on those who oppose specific measures to increase the supply of organs to produce satisfactory arguments that favor their opinion.
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.
Imagine if you were in need of a transplant and was waiting for the day when you found your donor match. Many recipients are stuck on the waitlist for a donor and sometimes even pass away because the waitlist took too long. To avoid this issue, a few ideas or systems should be considered in order to make the process quicker. Currently organ donations only consist of hair, blood plasma, and sperm and egg. Since removing your kidney is a riskier procedure than donating your hair, receiving money for the process will influence people to donate. 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 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.
