Organ Donation Hypocrites
Too many people talk the talk but don’t walk the walk. What do I mean? You’ve heard me say that over 90 percent of Americans approve of organ donation but barely 35 percent bother to become donors. This blog is a challenge.
Hey liberals who make so much of helping those in need, who support large governmental humanitarian relief programs and who urge everyone to perform some kind of community service, why don’t you practice what you preach and become organ donors. If you don’t become organ donors and urge — no, help everyone you know to do the same, you are nothing but a bunch of hypocrites.
And you compassionate conservatives who so believe in encouraging private citizens to get more involved and to depend on government less, why aren’t you promoting organ donation and becoming donors yourselves? You seem to encourage faith based and community based activism, but you, like the liberals, are sitting on your hands while thousands die due to a lack of transplantable organs.
And then there are the religious groups who preach the sanctity of life and that you should love your neighbor as you love yourself, why aren’t you doing more to promote organ donation? You’ve got to do more than pray. You’ve got to take some action. Maybe God is answering your prayers by telling you to do something instead of depending on him to solve all the problems.
All of the above groups fall into a very large group of hypocrites. If you don’t like this blog, don’t complain to me. Go forth and save lives by encouraging organ donation and when someone tells you, “You are right I’m going to become a donor,” don’t stand by and accept that. Offer to help them, drive them to the driver’s license office right away or get on line with them to register with Donate Life America.
You should all be as disgusted as I am that only 35 percent of Americans are organ donors. If you believe in organ donation, why the hell aren’t you doing something about it?
I hope you have found this post to be helpful, perhaps enlightening but no matter what we would like to get your thoughts on this most important issue. Please comment in the space provided or email your thoughts to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. And – please spread the word about the immediate need for more organ donors. There is nothing you can do that is of greater importance. If you convince one person to be a donor you may save or positively affect over 50 lives. Some of those lives may be people you know and love.
