Since that time donation has been the only way to increase the current supply of transplantable organs. Some people are uncomfortable with the idea of organ donation due to misconceptions and lack of knowledge. In fact, organ transplant recipient Dr. Phil H. Berry, Jr. points out that there would be less deaths of people waiting for transplants, “if Americans would overcome their reluctance to become organ donors” (29). Organ donation whether it is upon your death or giving a part of a liver or one kidney while you are alive is a charitable gesture towards your fellow man and could give meaning to the end of your life. The mere act of donating could bring more peace to your loved ones at the time of your death and as a result, you could give
Become an Organ Donation Organ donation is a sacrifice that can touch many people through one person’s unselfish gift. Granted that gift most often comes after a tragic loss of a loved one. As the bearer of three functioning kidneys, I have always considered organ donation to be the expected norm. But today, the focus will be to enlighten you on the reasons to consider organ donation. Organ donations are needed for every age group, race, and ethnic groups. Each person should take the opportunity to extend the gift of life to another individual through organ donation.

Donating an organ is the ultimate gift any person could give, simply because it saves the life of another. Giving the gift of life is far more important than the right to decide how to dispose of a body that a deceased person will no longer need. When a person is dead, and no longer needs the body, then in all reality a person whom is dying, and could easily be saved by an organ from the deceased person

A Paraphrase of Elisabeth Bletsch’s “Will Part of You Be Left Behind?” In her essay, “Will Part of You Be Left Behind?”, Elisabeth Bletsch claims that being an organ donor does not hurt the donor but instead saves lives of those in need. Although she seems to be undecided on the choice of people being donors in the beginning, she ultimately comes to the realization that a person can save a life by being one. She also states that those who don’t register as organ donors are either too busy or have not accepted the idea of death yet.
“I think you should automatically donate your organs because that would turn the balance of organ donation in a huge way. I would donate whatever anybody would take, and I 'd probably do the cremation bit.” (George Clooney) Even though people do attribute to organ donation there are just not enough people doing it. When someone chooses to register to donate organs, that person is considered a modern day hero. By means of donation every person who registers to become an organ donor can save the lives of up to 8 other people. As of April 2015 there were 123,193 patients waiting for an organ transplant. Over 100,000 of the patients that are on that list just due to needing a kidney. Every month around 3,000 new patients are added to the waiting list, that comes out to about a new patient every 10 to 14 minutes ("Organ
Organ Donating Every thirty minutes someone gets added to the waiting list for an organ transplant (‘Frequently Asked Questions”). Not only that, but the number of patients being added to the waiting list is growing larger than the number of donors (“Organ Donation Statistics”). Many people are in the need of some kind of organ donation, so anyone who donates can help to save many lives. Organ donation is also such a great way to give back to people.

Organ donations and transplants are the removal of organs and tissues from one person to another person. The need for organ transplants are very necessary. There are many people who are in need of organs who are on a waiting list for an available organ. Some people think that becoming an organ donor is a hard decision. I on the other hand would say that it is not that hard of a decision because if you had the chance to save someone else’s life wouldn’t you want to take that chance at giving someone else a better life?
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, every ten minutes a name is added to the National Transplant waiting list. As of December 1, 2015, there are 122,477 people that need a lifesaving operation and are on the transplant waiting list. While on the waiting list, there is an average of 22 people that die every day. So far, only 23,134 transplants have been done in 2015. (U.S. Depart.of Health and Human Services) This incredibly low number of transplants is why more people should become organ donors. Choosing to become an organ donor provides the opportunity to save up to eight lives and improve the quality of life for many others with tissue donation. An organ donor can also provide comfort to the grieving family: the loss of the loved one will be helping others to live. Becoming an organ donor is much easier than many think. The decision can literally be done in just minutes.

It is important to recognize the factors that play a role in a potential donor's decision to partake in organ donation either in death or while living. First and foremost, an internal drive to help others is a quality that should visibly shine in the individual. Also, their selfless character and willingness to help those around them should be unmistakably apparent. Given that sometimes the recipient will be a person who they know, when the donor recognizes how much that person means to them, suddenly the sacrifices required to make organ donation a success will be put by the wayside. Most commonly, family members or close friends of the potential donors are experiencing medical issues that require a new organ or an addition of tissue. Proceeding
Organ donation myths have been around for a long time. These types of myths have stopped people from being organ donors as well as stopping families from letting there loved one receive a needed organ transplant. These myths are one of the main reasons for the organ shortage in the United States today. While some people decide to save another humans life some do not because of these myths surrounding organ donation. One person has the opportunity to save up to fifty lives just by deciding to be an organ donor and doing so would help with the organ shortage in the United States.
