AN OPEN LETTER TO THE UNITED STATES CONGRESSIONAL BLACK CAUCUS; A SOLUTION TO THE NATIONAL ORGAN DONOR CRISIS.

SHORTLY, THIS MESSAGE WILL BE PRESENTED TO BLACK LAWMAKERS IN CONGRESS. WILL THEY INTRODUCE A BILL ADDRESSING THE ORGAN DONAR SHORTAGE? PROBABLY NOT, BUT IT'S WORTH A TRY.

Greetings, esteemed members of the U.S. Congressional Black Caucus.

In our past, a book was written by Adam Smith, titled " The Wealth of Nations. " Adam Smith argued that greed is like an invisible hand that has the power to transform the lust for money into a force, beneficial to the common good. Greed would inspire competition, the " producer class ", out of greed and self-interest, would compete with others in the "producer class" by offering their goods for lower prices. Inevitably, this would be a great blessing to the " consumer class. "

Since this open letter concerns the Organ Donar shortage, a discussion about the flaws of the " trickle down economic theory " described above is a discussion for another time. However, a " snippet " of this theory can be used to solve the ever growing shortage of viable organs needed by people in need of immediate transplants.

The solution to the aforementioned problem is relatively simple. A Bill should be introduced, proposing that organ donars be given the choice of DONATING THEIR ORGANS TO OTHER ORGAN DONARS. If a person is not an organ donar him/herself, their eligibility to recieve the aforementioned organs would be severely limited.

What nobility would exist in introducing such a Bill? If a Bill of this type became Law, many, many more people would sign up to become organ donars for their own benefit. With certainty, the numbers of people who sometimes die waiting for organ transplants would decrease.

As an African American "Scientist" , I've seen, firsthand, the hurt inflicted upon patients and families alike, due to this problem. It would bring me great pleasure, and personal satisfaction, if such a Bill, with such powerful social implications for the welfare of our society, were introduced by people of Color.

I hope you will convene, one with another, to see that such a Bill is introduced into Congress.

Kind regards,

George Malik Al-Mahdi
