There are many valid points as to why mandatory organ donations should not be legal, such as it is their body, and in America, we have a human right to our own bodies and what we do with it. But isn’t the biggest human right, the right to life? We have a human right to be alive. “One organ donor can save up to 8 lives.” (Learn the Facts) Who is anyone to take the right of life from someone, just because you are being selfish and have no beneficial use for your organs, when someone is dying because they need an organ of yours? I have to agree, that if organ donations did become legal, it would change the underlying meaning of organ donations, it wouldn’t be because you truly want to help people.
The political parties of any democracy is performing the same functions as a public authority, thus concluding that the political parties would ipso facto be covered under the ambit of Public Authority under the Section 2 (h) of the Right to Information Act, 2005. As the Political Parties are continuously engaged in the performance of public duty and it is, therefore, important that they become accountable to the public and be transparent in purview of the allocation and distribution of party funds. In a Government of responsibility like ours, where all the agents of the public must be responsible for their conduct, there can be but few secrets. The
This act shows great love and compassion when one pledges their organs for others who are in need. Organ donation can be done from either a living person or a cadaver to a living recipient in a process known as organ transplantation. Regardless of the fact that organ donation for organ transplant enhances the quality of many lives, ethical and legal aspects must always be considered, especially in the case where cadaver organ transplantation is involved.  In Malaysia, the recipient of cadaver organ donation is dependent on the needs and the results of histocompatibility laboratory tests to prevent illegal organ trafficking. According to the Code of Medical Ethics, under section II – Ethical Obligation of Doctors to the Patient (13.Transplantation), any details regarding organ transplantation including the objective of
The right to vote as recorded in Article 25 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) ensures that, “Every citizen [has] the right… to take part in the conduct of public affairs (http://www.ohchr.org/en/professionalinterest/pages/ccpr.aspx, 1966).” Furthermore, the right to vote is “the basis of democracy and is a vital part of the enjoyment of all human rights (ITR)”. However, “even though almost all Australians over 18 years old have the right – and the obligation – to vote, not all Australians enjoy that right as a practical matter (https://www.humanrights.gov.au/our-work/rights-and-freedoms/publications/right-vote-not-enjoyed-equally-all-australians, 2010).” Consequently, the Australian legal system inadequately
It is important to question whether this has resulted in the people being uninformed and uninterested in politics, and whether it is necessary to have the people stay involved in this process. This essay will argue that compulsory voting, as employed in Australia, creates a superior form of democracy than countries that allow voting to be voluntary, such as the United States. In order to introduce compulsory voting it should be noted that it is a far less common practice than voluntary voting; there are only about 20 countries in the world with mandatory voting (Australian gov 8). In most of the
The argument of whether organ donors should be compensated for their efforts has become a heated topic. The two sides of the argument have equally valid points, but one must look to the benefit of not only the organ recipients, but also to the donors and to their well-being. There are more ways than one to get the desired organs, not all of them legal in the least. The exploitation of the poor that would accompany the choice of paying people for organ donation would most likely be devastating. Ultimately, organ donation should remain a gift between the donor and the recipient to reduce the chance of exploitation of any participants.
He said that regulating political contributions is one of the keys to strengthen the political party system and end the patronage politics in the country. (Sy, 2013) Looking at the other side of the Pork Barrel,though, we will see that it helps in some cases like in education. It paves ways for the students to study by granting them scholarships. This also helps to give aide to the casualties of calamities in the country. There is just this big problem that makes it unconstitutional—the way the politicians misbehave by stealing the funds and doing the prohibited acts in the Pork Barrel Fund
Without the influence of money in our elections and the donations from corporations and sponsors, then our political campaign system would be chaotic, full of illegal funding, and secrecy. According to The Atlantic, if restrictions were put on the amount of campaign money spent then wealthy donors, corporations, and unions would be able to spend unlimited amounts of money and may do it in secrecy. Secret donations would make the government and politicians seem less trustworthy because it would be harder to track who and where the money is coming from. Along with spending money in secret, there is the possibility of super pacs coming together outside of a candidate's campaign and spending unlimited amounts of money. According to Opensecrets, super pacs are independent expenditure-only committees that raise money from donors outside of a campaign in order to advocate for or against any specific political candidate.
To begin with, I partially feel that the selling of organs should be morally permissible including the procurement programs run by the States that offer financial compensation to living donor as long as the donor is not coerced even if his financial status is not good, lacking capacity, ill-informed or manipulated and helps those recipients who are genuinely in need. This way the donor achieves both purpose viz compensation and life of recipient. As we all know, organ donation is a noble act and can save many lives, however, there are pros and cons on the subject. There are black marketers and hence legalization to reduce the influence of these bodies and implementation of legal compensation organ donation program is a must to decrease the amount of business going to the Black Market and also minimize exploitation of the donors, specifically poors. Despite stringent laws it is
