According to the National Organ Transplantation Act, sale of organs for transplantation is illegal in the US. Organs can only be donated. There were 6,613 people gave organs in 2002, which tripled the number in 1990. However, there is still a shortage because the demand of organs for transplantation is much larger than the amount of donation (supply). Some patients just could not wait until the right organ donation and died. The US Department of Health and Human Services is trying to encourage more people to donate their organs. Nevertheless, there exist several problems that donors should understand, such as the risk of giving away their organs. As it mentioned in the article, donors may have financial, physical and emotional problems, which they have to pay for their kindness. For instant, donor’s long-term recovery fee is not covered by insurance companies. Also, there are some physical problems. For example, in 2002, 56 kidney donors had to take a kidney transplant operation later and some donors died because of the donation. We have to admit that donors pay more than we thought to help other people and sometimes they may have problem out of control in the future. Do you think they should get some money for their recovery after donation? Their kindness cannot pay off their bills. Do you think it is worthy consideration to donate organ for transplantation even though there exist so many potential problems?
