A Policy Proposal as a Guest Editorial
Write a 1,500-1,750-word policy proposal related to the sale, trade, or donation of human organs using five to seven academic resources. The policy proposal should be suitable for publication as an editorial in a college or city newspaper or in a publication associated with a particular group, such as a church newsletter or employee bulletin. The voice and style of your argument should be aimed at readers of your chosen publication.

Your editorial should have the following features:

2. Persuade the audience that you have selected that this is a problem that needs solving; give it presence.
3. Propose action offering specific details to show how the actions will help alleviate the problem.
4. Justify your solution; the reasons why your audience should accept your proposal and act on it.
