I will never be an organ donor, and my babies will never be organ donors, unless they chose so when they are older, and even than if I am there, I will fight the hospital about it even if it is in their charts.
I want to hold my child if my child is dying. I want to be there with my child the entire time. Even if they are already gone. I want to sit there and pray for days hoping my child comes out of it. It's happened before, it is rare but it happens.
If I or my child are dying, I want to hospital to do EVERYTHING to try and keep us alive and bring us back. I DO 100% believe that if you are a donor and you are most likely going to die, the hospital staff will not try as hard, will push you over that edge if you are close to it, etc.
I DO BELIEVE THIS.
I just watched a news thing they were saying that facebook is now asking if you are a donor. My answer is NO. I am NOT a donor. The news said, it isn't true that the hospital won't try as hard. Bull. I believe that they wont try. Why should they? You want to be a donor.
And... If my child were still breathing, which they have to be when they take the stuff out, how do you KNOW your child doesn't feel it?
They could still feel it, we don't know if they can or not and I am not taking that chance. That's my baby no matter how old they get, and no one is going to do that to them. It's BARBARIC imho.
That is my CONFESSION for the day.
