We need to play a game of Simon says here in the US. For some reason – the UK had a record number of organ donor‘s last year. They had more donors than they have had in 28 years. Show us the way, UK.
Here in the US, 20 people die every day waiting for an organ transplant. We need to fix this gruesome statistic.
The US government has made it a little bit harder in that you cannot offer someone financial incentive or any other type of benefit for donating an organ. And yet we’re a capitalist country – what can we do about this conundrum?
Perhaps the government should give back a little more before demanding more organ donors. Perhaps a free blood test screening all possible underlying illnesses that could result in the need for an oak entrance but in the future would be a huge incentive. How about that, Uncle Sam? Just spitballing.
