  • I'm open to it. I don't have body part that I'm most willing to donate. If it'll help someone, I hope they can use it, no matter the body part. I don't think anyone would want my uterus though, it's been through enough. Soon to be mother of 5 here.

  • For me it doesn't really matter bc I'm dead. As long as my family knows that they have first dibs for anyone sick in my family.

  • Usually if you sign your organ donation card they take as many as possible.
    I am going to a tribute for organ donors next Sunday. My daughter died last year and she had authorized organ donation. She and others from 2010 are being honored locally.
    I cannot decide how I really feel, but I do know they are greatly needed and most appreciated.

  • I'm an organ donor. Anything and everything that *can* be used should be. It makes me happy to know that when I die, if there is anything worth passing on that could improve the life of another person, will be. It would be my final charitable gift to humanity.

  • Nope not open to organ donation. Did you see that movie in the 70's or read the book, Coma? They were deliberately killing organ donors to get their organs for the rich people. Ever since I read that book, I just dont want my name and bllod type in a data base that some rich person could get a hold of and have me offed so they can live. I know, I'm crazy, but it is how I feel.

  • keisha613- haha!! that cracks me up:)

    They can take whatever they want- my eyes are pretty bad though so I don't know if they would want to use those.
