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
Organ transplants in the present day are very expensive even if you have health insurance with high coverage. Another problem is that some organs are so high in demand that there is a waiting list, on which patients can remain for months or years. Increasing the number of donated organs would increase the number of operations which in effect would bring down the expenses and eliminate 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.
Organ Donation, only two hundred one thousand, four hundred and fifty-nine people are registered at death since 1988 and only one hundred fifty-two thousand and ninety people were living donors since 1988. Compared to the amount of people who died with organs that are donatable, that 's not much and the amount of living donors compared to the amount of living people right now is three hundred twenty-five million, seven hundred sixty-two thousand, seven hundred and ten the amount of living donors is only 21.4190748899% of the population. It seems many people that can donate don’t know all the facts of organ donation. Even though some people believe stuff they view on television, television writers usually over exaggerate things. Despite advances in medicine and technology, and increased awareness of organ donation and transplantation, there continues to be a gap between supply and demand.
One reason why someone would be proposed to it because of ethics. They believe that it should be your choice to donate, and not the government 's. But without the government 's help, not enough organs are being donated. People die everyday for various reasons, however most of their organs are being buried or burned with them. Their organs should not be buried with them, if they could save the lives of people dying each day waiting for organs. Sometimes the government needs to step in, and help for the bigger picture.
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.
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
Based on chapter 5 in the book Beyond Bumper Stickers Ethics, utilitarianism is the idea of utility or usefulness. “Utilitarianism says that acts are morally right when they succeed in (or are useful for) bringing about a desired result. The result that should be desired is happiness, because it alone is intrinsically good” (Wilkens, S, 1995, pp. 84). This can be interpreted that the death of one can bring happiness to multiple individuals. One organ donor can save up to 8 lives and also save or improve the lives of up to 50 people by donating tissues and eyes (New York Organ Donor Network, 2015).
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.
However, donation involves asking ethical questions because the treatment affects not only the people in need of transplants but also the individuals who donate. The main reason why people may consider donating organs is because of the very great benefit that this can bring to others. On the other hand, some find the idea of organ donation too invasive. Those people believe that it is wrong to take organs from people. The decision to or not to donate is a moral decision.
Some people are against organ donation in this world because there’s people waiting for a transplant. A man kills his wife, equalled up to fifteen stabs (Schlessinger). Then, he was rushed to the hospital to get a transplant because he tried to commit suicide by drinking rat poison (Schlessinger). Passing two thousand people on the New York transplant list and gets an organ before anyone else on the waiting list (Schlessinger). That whole situation is that he should’ve been at the end of the waiting list and waited like everyone else had to, but in my mind is that they only cared if he was gonna die or live.
When individuals (recipients) who abide waiting for an organ elicit informed regarding this, organ donating cause, they have hope that others will be touched. When individuals endure information that they might die due to an organ that has stopped functioning, majority of the time individual’s freeze they abide confused in this unexpected situation. Their prime focus is centered on the idea that they might not live anymore and this can be an overwhelming feeling, not to mention the stress it puts on the family and the individual to seek aid financially. Copious of the recipients feel overwhelmed by the entity of the situation and thought of how much this procedure will cost has already crossed their minds (Guedj, M., 2011). Now looking at the financial aspect, operations for donating organs can range from 561,200 to 1,206,800 including all of the testing, room, physician and other medical tools needed (Unos, 2011).
