Definitions: We define the house as Canada, and we're currently debating over the topic of purchasing and selling these organs through a legal and safe process.

In the world that we live in today, with health technology advancing everyday and the ability to cure a disease becomes more efficient, why aren't we allowing the buying and selling of organs if it will ultimately help someone in need?

Today I will be constructing two arguments titled "Legality" and "Impacts.

"Legality"
By making the buying and selling of human organs legal, black markets currently selling organs will shut down all over the country. This is because most people would rather buy these organs in a safer and legal transaction than to go to a rather sketchier establishment to make an illegal purchase. Also, buying organs from a black market doesn't assure the actual condition of the organ, which can lead to organ failure if they are transplanted.

Secondly, if a individual is in desperate need of finances they should be allowed to sell their organ legally. After all it is their body, and they can choose what they want to do with it.

Now onto my second argument titled "Impacts"

In the current status quo, many people are suffering from diseases which can cause an abnormality in an organ. The intentions of these patients is to become healthy again, but to complete that goal, they will need the help of a donor; a organ donor. Now, most people in our society today aren't completely motivated to donate their organs as it would have the negative effect of losing theirs.

If we pass this bill, more citizens will consider the act of selling an organ since there is now an reward for them. If more organs are sold, more patients will be cured from their abnormality.

So overall the impact that this bill would have on our country is a lot more positive than most of the population were to expect.

Okay. Pro just forfeited this round. Also this is an one day debate which is so short, so I won' have much time for arguments.

Arguments

I will just write my arguments in this round not the rebuttal because there is no time. Please do not count that as an dropped argument.


1. First of all, this argument is based on selling and buying organs and why we should not allow it.


Okay this is my first argument. My first argument is that the poor will only do hard work.


Do you think that the rich will sell or buy organs even thought they are rich? No! They can get better healthcare and alerady has a lot of money. Then who will sell these organs? Of course the poor will sell these organs to get money. The poor can’t buy these organs because of no money, so they need to take out there own organs which is bad


First of all it is just bad for your health. Would you really think you will have no problem with one kidney. There will be some damage in your body so you might get serious injuries for getting these organs.


As I said poor can’t buy but can sell. They will sell but who will buy these organs when they can have healthcare? The poor will just have bad health and have no money the same as the beginning.


2. No help


"The global organ shortage has spawned illegal and unregulated organ markets. The World Health Organization estimates that five to ten per cent of all kidneys transplanted annually – perhaps 63,000 in total – are obtained in the organ bazaars of Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe and South America. Thus, we face a dual tragedy: on one side, thousands of patients who die each year waiting for a kidney; on the other, a human rights fiasco in which corrupt brokers deceive indigent donors about the nature of surgery, cheat them out of payment and ignore their post-surgical needs.

Altruistic appeals to organ donation have not yielded enough organs for transplantation. Not all developed countries have made the most use of posthumous donation, and of course they should. Unfortunately, much of the world transplant establishment – including the World Health Organization, the Transplantation Society and the World Medical Association – focuses exclusively on obliterating organ trafficking. While at face value this may seem reasonable, in reality it is a lethally one-sided prescription, because trying to stamp out underground markets either drives corruption further underground or causes it to flourish elsewhere. Government-sponsored compensation of healthy individuals who are willing to give one of their kidneys to save the life of a dying stranger is the best short-term solution."

Okay this is what it said in an article. First of all there is no help. They can’t buy organs and will just die. I think that this is no much help whatever you do. It is all the same if we do this act or not which just makes everything useless.


Therefore, the resolution is negotiated.

Please respond Pro. Vote for Con.
