CONCLUSIONS


We think that transplants are a good idea because can help to the people that need it and safe lives.

Some one that is going to die I will say them to be death donors because why they want their organs of they are going to die.

Is good to donate organs or tissue for the people that can die. For me i like more the death donor because when you die, for what do you want your organs? And the live donor I think that is good but I think that you have to donate for the people of you family.

Like a  live donor and like a death donor is good, but if you are going be a live donor you have to be very brave because you safe a live but you can lost your live and a death donor is also good because you are death but healthy so donate your organs if you don't want them.
