Default organ donation

What are your thoughts on organ donation. Are you or your family donors?

I've decided to become one after discussing it with my family. I guess it was a completeness issue holding me back previously. My soul, spirit and body are one. So I guess I wanted to be buried or cremated complete.

A good man in my county was tragically killed recently. He died of a brain injury. His organs were used to save 10 peoples lives. This had a profound effect on me and after discussing it at length with my family I've decided to register and have my license display this choice. My family have agreed to respect my wishes and will not veto my decision should the situation arise.

Discuss.

Yes... I've told my mom when I was 13 that I wanted my organs donated if I were to die.

In 7th grade, my teacher told us a story about how she lost her brother... it was a tragic car accident... and her mother was late to the hospital, by the time she got there, he was dead, and the organs became useless... so, you gotta think if you really want it done, you have to discuss it with your family ahead of time.

I think it's great people can be saved with donated organs. People who take part in that are generous and thoughtful people.

...I am not an organ donor, mostly because I don't think anyone would want my organs anyway and when I think about it on a personal level I am freaked out.

But props to everyone who is an organ donor.

This is a big misconception about being an organ donor. If you die, then your organs are useless. In order for your organs to be able to be donated, you have to be braindead. You still have vital signs and everything, but no brain activity.



I don't think I'm an organ donor currently, but I should change it. If I can help someone to live, then I want to do that. My organs would be of no use to me if I were to become braindead.

That came out wrong, I had a bit of a mental lapse... I meant for it to come out as, if I'm laying in a hospital bed dying, they know I'm gonna die, the doctors know I'm gonna die, I want me my to say something about my organs, because we've already went over it... so she knows what I want.

If you read the second paragraph... you would see the story I told, about my how teachers brother died because his mom was late to the hospital, and couldn't say to donate his organs or not, by the time she was there, he was dead, and his organs were useless.

I am currently not an organ donor, but i feel eventually i will change that. If my organs can save lives , why not, i wont need them.

But i heard from someone once that if you are in an accident and the emt's/ambulance knows that you are an organ donor , they tend to not be in such a hurry to get you to the hospital. That may or may not be true, there really isnt gonna be a way to prove it, becuase naturally they are gonna deny it. Just a thought, not necessarily true or untrue.

I am am an organ donor. The way I see if, once I am dead, I have no more use for my organs, so I should give them to someone who can use them.

The first time I heard about organ donation was around 2000, and trust me, as soon as I went home and talked to my mom about it, she was telling me stuff like that. It's the main reason why I haven't considered becoming a donor.

I see it the same way as you, it's not necessarily true or untrue. Also, whether the doctors save your life or take your organs, they're doing their job either way. Still, you always have to think twice about literally giving yourself away.

I'm gonna research the pros and cons now. If I ever feel like it's the absolute right thing to do, then one day I'll sign my organs away, no problem. As of right now, I view it like I view charity: selfless thing to do, but shouldn't be required from everyone.

They can have my organs when they harvest them from my cold, dead corpse.
