Would you donate an organ?

I never considered it until my sister had kidney failure. She was fortunate to receive a kidney from another donor.

Would you donate an organ to a relative? friend? stranger?

While you are alive (kidney? lung?) or if you should die?

Only to my dh or son would I donate one of my organs, dead or alive. Otherwise, I am taking them all with me.

:)  This was the way I felt, too, but I did sign the organ donor form when I got my drivers license this time.

I put on my D.L. that i want my organs donated if i die. But my dh says he'll never sign the paperwork to allow it which is upsetting to me. I feel its MY body and MY last wish, please honor it.

At my death they could harvest anything that might help another living person.

When I'm dead, they can rip the flesh from my bones, I don't care.

Alive though, only to DH or our son.
