Let's say that you are someone who does not want to donate or are never open to do a donation.
I'm not just talking about kidneys or part of you liver, but also about stemcells, blood or other tissue. This way you are not improving someones life quality or chances to live.
We have a shortage of organs and the list is growing for people waiting for a donation. According to [Donatelife](https://www.donatelife.
net/statistics/) every 10 minutes someone is added to the transplant waiting list. Every day 22 people die and we have 118,000 people waiting for a donation.
The numbers are big and we already have a certain ruling about who should get the organs. So I want to add another criterium for the priority selection.
People who were not open to donate should not receive an organ when they need one. This ruling is only used when there is a shortage of organs (which is almost always).
Ofcourse when there is enough for everybody then the people who aren't open to donate should receive their organs.
But for now I don't think that hypocrits should be benefiting of a system that they are not open to join even when they know they can save lives.
I know there are some points where you can say that donating might not be possible for someone. Those people should be excluded. Also it is known that donating a kidney increases health problems.
My point is that you don't have to donate a kidney to help someone. Everything can help. If we force people to help others in our society we will be able to help many many people.
Think about the lives you can save. Think about the fact that one day your family member or your friends being able to survive due to people being open to donate.
When we look at the recent bombings or attacks here in Europe we see many people donating blood.
So many people are donating that there are too many donations which is maybe the best thing to have an excessive amount of.
Donating should be also very important in this day and age. We are improving everyday in the medical science and we should be taking advantage of that.
We have the capability to help many people but we aren't using it the way we should. If you want to see the impact one donation can have I recommend watching [this vox video](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7EglP5A2Hg).
In the video you see that one donation is able to help multiple people. So when we look back at the transplant waiting list you see that we don't need 118,000 donations, but even less than that.
118,000 is a big number, but the amount of people who can donate makes this number look miniscule.
So we know the statistics, the numbers and the reasons why donation is such an important thing.
It might come over as forcing people to donate, but sometimes a little push does more good than harm.
Sometimes you should force people into a corner and make them do certain things to improve our society.
