Read the text and answer the following questions supporting your ideas. Can Teens Decide on Their Own to Donate Life in the USA? For teenagers, getting a driver’s license is a highly anticipated rite of passage. To them, it’s the road to independence. When they get their licenses, they also get to make an important decision: Do they want to become organ or tissue donors? While teenagers may feel independent, this is a question that needs to be discussed as a family, according to Michelle Nadler, pediatric liver transplant nurse practitioner at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. Even if a teenager signs the back of his or her driver’s license to indicate organ donor status, the family still has to give permission in the event of a tragedy. Signing the driver’s license can open the door to conversation. “It’s difficult to make a decision if you’ve never talked about organ donation and you’re dealing with the shock of losing a child,” Nadler says. “No one wants to think about the loss of a child, but unfortunately, sudden death happens every day. The Benefits of Donating Organ and tissue donation is the gift of life. Up to eight people can benefit through solid organ donations of the lungs, heart, kidneys, liver, pancreas and intestines. Countless others are helped, and their quality of life is improved from tissue donation that includes heart valves, veins, skin, bones and corneas. Donors can designate all or specific organs or tissues they would like to donate. “I don’t see any downside to being a donor – you only benefit other people,” Nadler says. There are no costs to the family for organ and tissue donation. Through the entire donation process, the body is treated with care, respect and dignity. Nadler points out that most religions support organ and tissue donation and see it as the final act of love and generosity to others. Meanwhile, the number of people on the waiting list for organ transplants continues to grow exponentially. 0. In the USA, what do teens have to consider when they obtain their drivers license?
