    Grammar

    Can you guys help me fix my grammar. I did my best, but I know there are still many mistakes.




    Bioethical dilemmas are contemporary issues nowadays. One of the important dilemmas among these bioethical issues is buying and selling human organs for transplant. Nowadays the only way of transferring an organ from one person to another is donation. People are not allowed to buy or sell their organs for money. Buying an organ for transplant may be essential to save someone’s life. However, to receive a donated organ, people have to wait their turn on waiting list. Therefore, bioethical issue of buying and selling human organs for transplant is controversial due to the variation of opinions concerning this dilemma.

    Many people agree with the idea of legislation buying and selling the human organs for transplant for a few reasons. First, supporters think that this procedure is beneficial for one who receives an organ because it helps to save his life. According to Levine (1999), beneficence, one of the bioethical principles, states that one should maximize possible benefits. Applying this principle to defender’s opinion, buying and selling human organs for transplant is beneficial, because transplantation helps save lives. Second, they point out that there is almost no harm to the donor, because donor gives part of his organ without harm to the normal functioning of his organism. Bioethical principle of beneficence also says that one must not do harm or evil (Levine, 1999). So this principle also has parallels with supporter’s opinion in that that there are no harm to donor and there are plenty of benefits to a patient.

    Critics of bioethical issue of buying and selling human organs for transplant argue that this idea is totally unethical for a couple of reasons. Opponents say that buying and selling organs is unethical because it is not fair for those who cannot financially afford buying it. According to Levine (1999), justice, one of the bioethical principles, states that everybody should be treated equally. Applying this principle to the critics’ opinion, it is not equal that welfare people could buy an organ and those who does not have enough money would have to wait their turn on waiting list. Moreover, they point out that legalization of organ trade would cause murder which is committed for selling victim’s organs. Opponents also say that there is harm to donor when he/she gives out part of his/her organ. Bioethical principle of beneficence says that one must not do harm or evil (Levine, 1999). Applying this principle to opponents’ opinion, donor, who gives his organ, will definitely suffer. For example if donor gives out one of his kidney the entire load comes on the last kidney, which can cause rapid wear and failure.
