Are you an organ donor? Why or why not??

I know there are religions that forbid it and others that are not donors for other reasons... What are your reasons for being or not being an organ donor??

  • Yes I am...if figure if they are still good when I am done, why not let someone else use them that needs them? They are just gonna inject them with embalming fluid and kill them anyway so...how about changing someones future?

  • Yes, I am! It's on my driver's license,and my DH and all 3 kids know it as well. My MIL had to have a corneal transplant, and her's came from a young man who died as a result of a motorcycle accident. His family,in their worst moments imaginable,made the decision to help others,and allow their young man to live on. I had already decided I wanted to before this,but when this happened, I knew for sure I would.

  • YEPPERS!
    This body is only a vessel. When I am reincarnated, I will get another one.
    So why not help someone else.
    That is the ONLY reason I have in my living will, that I want to be kept on life support.
    If its to keep my organs going long enough to get them to someone else.

  • Yup. When I die, I'm dead. I have no further use of my organs why not give them to someone who has a chance at life.

  • I am an organ donor because once I am dead, I will no longer need the physical parts of my body, so why not let others benefit? My husband is actually against me being an organ donor. He doesn't like the idea of another person walking around with my eyes, or heart, or anything like that. I kind of told him, too bad, it's my body and this is what I want. I would actually love to donate my body to science, but he would never allow it to go that far.
