Question description

Think about the current system of organ donation in the United States and Great Britain. Currently, it is prohibited to compensate donors for providing organs for transplant. Donors may only receive money to cover actual incurred medical expenses. This is not true in other parts of the world. The systems range from organized and regulated, to complete chaos and immoral behavior to obtain organs for transplant.

Even though it may seem like a foreign concept to us and unethical, what are the disadvantages of having a system that compensates donors under strict government regulations? What are the advantages? Could it solve the shortage issues currently experienced by patients? Would families of recently deceased loved ones be more willing to provide viable organs for donations? It may sound macabre, but try to think of it as providing a valuable resource to thousands of people in need, versus a strictly moral issue. You will need to perform some research to gain perspectives on foreign approaches to organ donation.

Your response should be at least 200 words in length. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations. Any references or citations used should be in APA style.
