Are you an organ donor?

Posted by   + Show Post

I was reading about the woman who was pronounced dead at the hospital from a drug overdose. She as an organ donor an as her organs were about to be harvested, she opened her eyes! She was alive. 

I am an organ donor, but I have had discussions with other people who are not. Some of them have told me that they believe medical professionals would be more willing to allow a patient to die if they know they are an organ donor than to do all that they can to save them. They have also said that they fear circumstances like this, where they would be mistaken for being dead.

What do you think? Are you an organ donor? Do you have any of these fears?

I didn't hear about that, but my husband says he did. I'm going to leave it up to my husband and son, as to what they can handle about giving me body parts away. I would agree to give my heart. My husband and son can decide that. I won't put it on my ID.
