People also need to consider that as the potential donor must consider the possibility of adverse health effects after donation—as well as the potential to save the life of the recipient, who may be a loved one. Donating when alive is a hard decision to make because of the complications you may experience, most people would in a heartbeat for a loved one, but don’t think about their safety also. There are some organs in which you can donate and most cases would be okay. When someone you loves needs a life saving organ and you’re willing to give them yours, you have to remember that then you are in need of a organ and you will be put onto the waiting
They do not realize the suffering a person has gone through to try to survive in order to obtain a moment of happiness. When someone is alive people do not see the value of life and how precious it is, they do not realize it until it is too late. Many people would not notice such a small moment like this in their lives and would take it for granted. However, the characters seen in the novel treasure every moment similar to how they treasure life. They are able to see the value of life and how each person 's struggles has helped them heal.
Death is a part of life and while my patients are alive I would like to be a friend to them that way while they are alive they are as happy as they can be and I will know that I did everything I can to help them while they were alive. I think that not becoming attached to patients is a cowardly thing to do and selfish because they may need someone to talk to or ask questions to and if you are not there for them then you are not doing your job to the best of your abilities. While it would be sad being around a dying person it would not be uncomfortable. At that point I do not think my comfort matters. All my efforts should be turned towards that individual.
Other issues arise when a person is declared dead when they really aren’t because sometimes mistakes can be done in authentication. Living donors are not left out either in ethical discussions. Some think it is wrong to mutilate a person for the sake of another. For instance, the catholic denomination consider organ transplantation unethical because it goes against the totality principle which states that one part of the body can be sacrificed for the well-being of the rest of the body. No one is obliged to give their organs as a donation and therefore the informed consent has also been an ethical issue.
However, the limited available evidence suggests that a sizeable proportion of the public is less concerned about the timing of death in organ donation than about the process of decision making and assurances that the patient will not recover — concerns that are compatible with an ethical focus on autonomy and nonmaleficence. Medical professionals engaged in organ transplantation in the United States and elsewhere are exceptionally cautious about promoting shifts in public policy that have ethical implications. Although many are impatient with the public’s reluctance to donate organs—a reluctance which is reflected in US consent rates from surviving family that are as low as 46% —they are also aware that the entire enterprise of transplantation is vulnerable to public opinion. The caution is also related to the entire medical profession’s recognition that it is more susceptible than in the past to public scrutiny and censure. Sensational revelations of ethically questionable experimentation, the threat of alpractice suits, and increasing oversight by medical insurance managers, institutional review boards (IRBs), and ethics committees, have made serious inroads on a medical paternalism that once granted doctors wide latitude in medical decision
She explained to me that some people’s organs do not work the way they are supposed to and being an organ donor gives you the chance to help those in need. From that moment, I have always known that I would like to be an organ donor. I think the concept of helping improve someone else’s life once your life has ended is one of the most humane ideas we have in today’s society. I find this issue compelling because I know it affects a lot of people. If this proposal actually went into effect, it would be much easier to receive help if you had a damaged organ.
The family is forced to make decisions that are out of their knowledge due to lack of experience in the matter. The family is in an uneasy emotional state where they cannot think clearly or rationally. The family is also in an unusual financial state. There is a slight difference in this than what Mitford was explaining, because the family is not overwhelmed with new money, but worried about how they can afford to keep their relative alive on a ventilator or other machines prolonging life. This unique position that the family is in causes them to look towards the professionals, in this case doctors, in order to give them guidance and some sort of peace over their decision.
Yes and no depending on how you look at it. On one hand he 's correct since we can save lives but on the other hand nobody wants to save a life since we never see it so we 're never bothered by the fact that someone is dying since it happens all the time. But put in a situation where could prevent the death most likely would but we all are technically in that situation (As Singer states on page 934) every day when we want to have a night out or buy a new couch but instead we could be using this money to save the life of a child instead of on ourselves. Most people nowadays are hard-headed and I am one of them but people like me aren 't really going to listen to this "people are dying you can do something by spending cash" that stuff just passes by my head like the wind, no cares in the world to what 's going on. Or maybe it 's just that we 're all heartless since poverty doesn 't affect us we don 't care about some children starving to death.
This result in the low chances of a viable organ from the dead to reach and save the life of the living. In “Yes, Lets Pay for Organs” Charles Krauthammer talks about paying the dead not living for organ donation to decrease the lack of it. He fails to see with both living and dead the odds of a successful transplant get
Teachers have to deal with more meaningful stress than a professional athlete such as trying to make their students have a successful future. Doctors are saving lives, which are more important than playing any kind of sport. Police, firemen, and G.I.s are putting their lives on the line to save others lives. In other words as Clair states “Now that demonstrates the real inequality that exits in our world.” Professional athletes are only entertainers and do not bring much otherwise. I mean do not get me wrong I love to watch sports but the salaries they are getting does not add up to the work they put out.
