Speech

In everyday life, many people die because they are in need of various organ transplants. They end up losing their lives because they donate get volunteers to donate required organs to them (Childress & Liverman, 2006, p. 190). There has been a problem about organ transplants because many people need some money so that they donate the organs. For example, in United States, about 79000 patients are in need of organ transplants and they are waiting to be served with the organs with the organs by the volunteers. Every day, 16-17 people die while they are waiting for organ transplants. We can save their lives if we decide to donate the organs such that we can continue living together in harmony (Egendorf, 2009, p. 88).

We can save the patients and the only thing we need to do is to get in touch with the doctor who will explain the important things we need to do. The first thing is to feel a form of accepting to donate organs and get a card; it is just that simple. The form will be kept and when you die in many years to come your organs will be removed to save the lives of other patients by giving them more chances to live. When the organ transplant was introduced in the United States, the rate of survival was increased from 20% to 80%. This is a massive increase, which would have been impossible without the organ donations.

Some people have many worries that they might be left open after the surgery for the organ. This is not true because surgery will be done not because you are death but the same procedures used in the most common surgery will be followed (Siegel & Alvaro, 2009, p. 134). The gift of life is very important and anyone can donate. The way I saw things and what made me to decide to donate my organs is that after I die my organs will be of no use to me anymore but it can help others to continue living. There is no reason why I should deprive someone from using the organs.
