Should organ donation be compulsory or voluntary?

In the UK once you have reached the age of 18 you have the choice to donate your organs to those who may need a transplant because they are ill. When you are children it is down to your parents to decide whether or not to donate organs. Many people do donate their organs or are on the organ donor register. They do this by choice. Do you think it should be compulsory (they have to do it) or voluntary (their choice)? Comment below and leave your opinion.

She lived in a big castle and there was a bear that always wanted to break into Lucy’s house because the bear had no house so he couldn’t keep warm in the winter and when it is snowing . Lucy’s mum and dad had passed away when she was only 12 years old so she had no one to look after her so she had to look after her self. She always ate rotten flesh she didn’t have crisps and chocolate like we do. She just went into the forest and killed animals and then ate them.

THE AMAZING STORY OF BRAVERY…….

In the mysterious story of Brave in the Scottish Highlands there was once a young girl called Brave. She was the princess of the palace called castle lands. She hated to be called the princess because she wanted to be a normal person like me and you and when her mum said that she was a princess her face would turn into a really red hurricane and she would always be fuming like a fire truck. Every day she would go to a place which was called the woodlands. There she would go and there she would be on her black and white horse riding around. But the first time she saw her dad shooting out a bow and arrow she was very surprised and really wanted to have a try. Ever since then in her spare time she would go to the woodland and be shooting and shooting at trees. Every early morning also every evening and every night there she would be until 1o o’clock in the night. Brave actually did not behave on her marrying coronation day because she actually did not want to get married because she thought that getting married was the worst mistake that anyone could actually do. She was stomping away throwing things away and embarrassing her parents in front of the whole kingdom. Her mum was not happy at all and you could tell because she stormed upstairs and locked Brave in her room for a week so that she could not do what she wanted.

Christopher went to the town river not knowing about the bear. He peeked into the river but it looked perfect to drink from so he made his way back to the town. On the way out of the corner of his eye he saw a large limestone cave. It had a large sized entrance with a large amount of vampire bats round the entrance but he didn’t dare to go in there so he went back to town thinking why there were vampire bats on the front but he didn’t want to find out.
