Organ Donation

Organ Donation

From the respected PBS (Public Broadcasting System) program "Newshour" comes this comprehensive look at the topic of organ donation. A major attraction is a sketch of the human body, over which learners drag their mouse to learn how many people are waiting for specific organs. One article discusses the attitudes of various religions toward organ donation. Be aware: there is a link for viewers to 'sign up' as organ donors, and it may be necessary to warn students about misuse of this important link.
