Thesis: Today I am going to persuade you that organ donation is the ultimate gift of life.
Motivation: Some of you may be against organ donation because you may not be interested in donating organs until yourself or a loved one needs one or you just may not have enough knowledge on the subject I will provide this information for you today. Agreeable + Motivation- Some of you may agree with organ donation already be a donor and know all of the benefits of donating.
Today I will enhance your current knowledge.
Personal: I am proud to say I am an organ donor. I chose to become an organ donor at the age of sixteen when I got my driver’s license because I want to give someone else a second chance at life or improve a person’s overall quality of life if I am able to. Borrowed- I have researched several websites; listened to guest speakers, and even taken a psychology class on death and dying, life and living and through this class I have read a chapter in the book on organ donation and the process. Preview- Today I will talk to you about why you should donate, organ and tissue donation, and how the donation process takes place.
