Organ Donation Resources and Organ Shortages

Several months ago, this blog pointed out the prospective hazards of a New York City pilot organ harvesting program that sought to recover "fresh" organs from the just-deceased.

There is a big shortage of usable organs, particularly when contrasted with the demand by patients.

Clearly, increased voluntary donations should reduce any temptation for nefarious motives such as organ buying or even allowing people to die (such as through withholding necessary care) in order to source desired organs.

Courtesy of organ donation activist Phoebe Stone, here is a good list of resources for those interested in this subject.

1. http://donatelifeny.org (website of the New York Organ Donor Network, with interesting statistics and information on becoming a legally registered organ donor)

2. http://www.transplantliving.org (website maintained and operated by OPTN, the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network, and UNOS, the United Network for Organ Sharing; see specifically,
http://www.transplantliving.org/beforethetransplant/finance/costs.aspx, for a chart detailing the costs associated with transplantation; also see
http://www.transplantliving.org/livingdonation/financialaspects/statetax.aspx, for information regarding tax incentive and employment leave legislation in various states)

3. http://www.ca9.uscourts.gov/media/view_subpage.php?pk_id=0000007018 (this is the sound file for the Flynn v. Holder argument before the Ninth Circuit regarding NOTA's ban on compensation for bone marrow donation)

4. http://unos.org/ (website of UNOS, the United Network for Organ Sharing)
