I am against this motion because people might take advantage of this. usually people with ADI cards are only suitable if it was a brain death, and the chance of that happening is 1%. so they might sign an ADI card, become a priority if there was som sort of accident and get a transplant without having to donate organs.


I agree, I am also against the motion. Since Pro has negated his own proposition, I automatically win.

Anyway, the point of giving organ donors priority in receiving organs would be to motivate people to sign up to be organ donors. If 100 more people sign up to be organ donors because of this policy being implemented, then 1 of those people will end up donating organs, by your own reasoning. From that one organ donor, we could up to 25 organs and tissues, which could save up to 25 lives. That sounds like a pretty good deal.

Here's a source for the 25 organs number: "Up to 25 different organs and tissues can be donated for transplantation."

Anyway, again, Pro has conceded the debate. Vote Con.

If you are against it, you should change the resolution to something like: "Registered organ donors SHOULD NOT be given priority when they need an organ."

Plus add at least a second round, otherwise you will automatically lose to any argument, since with a single round you have decided not to refute any of their points.
