The healthcare team’s goal is to save as many lives as possible. Your life will come first! Another myth is that if you are on the organ recipient waiting list and so is someone famous, such as Beyoncé, that they will save Beyoncé first because she is famous. This is not true. All those on the recipient waiting list are treated fairly, and it is illegal to buy or sell organs in the United States.
If trafficking was legalized with regulations, there would rarely be a need to use the black market. Even though the 32 billion dollars that the black market makes each year would rapidly diminish, the money would be spent in other places, and legally. Many people argue that a human life should be invaluable but by legalizing the trafficking of organs, the list for organ transplants would slowly disappear. If the sale of organs was legal with heavy regulations, many more organs would be donated; therefore, many more lives would be saved all over the world. The demand for organs across the world far exceeds the number o... ... middle of paper ... ...nts will die before a suitable organ becomes available.
The government will distribute an enormous amount of money to healthcare plan even though many people wouldn’t be able to afford the plan. While the government noticed that many people won’t able to afford the rates, they still providing more money to plans. Studies shown that “6,027 adults ages 19 and older in the U.S., found that a quarter of adults with at least one chronic condition who met the criteria for being underinsured didn’t fill a prescription or skipped doses due to cost, compared with 7 percent of
Organ donation or organ transplant is a procedure where a person with organ failure, such as kidneys, hearts, lungs, liver and pancreas, gets a replacement organ that is healthy from another human body. The legalization of this surgery has generated a very controversial debate that has lasted for years now. What most people don’t understand is that the pros outway the cons. Besides, what is put before saving someone’s life? Of course, the organs that will be donated will be non-vital organs which are the organs that aren’t necessary to live.
The scarcity of transplant organs in the United States is accredited to many reasons: the unwillingness of families to approve donation after the donors death, even if the patient has wished to do so; religious objections; disinclination of medical personnel to approach families after the death; and the crookedness of the medical system. The need for organs far exceeds the number of donated organs, the dilemma becomes apparent: Should Organ Donors &/or Their Families Be Financially Compensated? For those who lack healthy organs, organ donations can save their life. Although there’s a tight spot, there is a shortage of much needed organs; the Mayo Clinic notes, “More than 101,000 people are waiting today for transplant surgeries.” The clinic goes on to state that while daily, 77 people receive organ transplants, nineteen die waiting for a transplant. Those waiting for transplants could likely be saved with a larger pool for organ donation.
Munjal et. al. poignantly assert that: “as we debate whether uDCDD (uncontrolled donation after circulatory donation of death) donors are still alive, living donors and patients in need of transplants are dying, and yet no patient whose heart has stopped unexpectedly, as opposed to under controlled circumstances, may become a donor. We find this counterintuitive state of affairs incomprehensible and the result to be a serious disservice to the public understanding of donation and transplantation” (2013). Regarding the subject of organ donation, we must consider that the beneficent act of sacrificing a fraction of the physical self for the survival of another is for the greater good.
Potential donors pass away every day not leaving instructions or even making the decision that they wish to be a donor and every year thousands of transplantable organs are buried or cremated. Potential living donors usually do not consider all the benefits organ donation has to offer. People should donate their organs because they can save someone’s life even after they die, there are many benefits to being an organ donor, and most myths about organ donning are false. In order to become a well informed donor, you must know what organ donation is, how it works, and how you can become an organ donor and what organs or tissues you can donate. There are no age limits on who can be an organ donor.
Jon Harmening Academic Writing Mr. Steiner 5/9/14 The Ultimate Gift When an organ such as your heart, liver, kidney or pancreas fails to function, the only remaining option may be to have an organ transplant. What if there are not enough organs to be used to save the lives of people who are in need? This is one of the huge problems we are facing today, not only in the United States, but all over the world. Due to the lack of organ donors, many people in need of an organ will die because they could not find a match in time, or because there were simply no organs to be offered. This problem can be dramatically changing if more people are willing to donate their organs.
A person can also donate the heart, liver, kidneys, lungs, pancreas, small intestine, corneas, skin, veins, heart valves, tendons, ligaments, and bones (Transplant). Many people are waiting for these life-saving transplants, but sadly, most will not live long enough to receive a transplant due to so few donors (Transplant). In fact, 18 waiting recipients will die each day due to lack of organ donations (Organ, WomensHealth). A lot of people refuse to become organ donors because of miseducation. The most widely known misconception associated with organ donation is that a donor will not receive the same medical treatment as a non-donor.
Every year the government keeps the sale of organs illegal, 7,000 will die (Cherry). Society in general needs to understand the extreme lengths that it 's going to take to save the lives of those on the waiting list. Those people waiting for an organ transplant want to spend their time knowing they will get a second chance instead of wondering if they are going to die. The long term effect of legalizing the sale of organs, whether it is from the living or deceased, sold to the government or individual, will have a final outcome that will save
