I am a donor, my husband is not though b/c he thinks they wont fight to keep you alive as well. Like he thinks that if you are going to die but may have a slim chance of living they won't work as hard b/c they want your organs or something.

i am. i think its horrible if you arent. i mean you arent going to be using them when your dead. its selfish when someone else could benefit from it and you without them.

I'm an organ donor! I also donate blood when I remember and can! I do it because, whether it's donated to a transplant recipient or medical research, either way it's still helping out somehow. And it's not like I need them! I just hope my family follows my wishes...I'm sure they will. My uncle donated his eyes! LOL

My entire family is, including my kids.  My dd was 5 when she donated her bone marrow to her brother, so she has already saved a life donating.   We have seen first hand how donation can save a life, help a family.  My dd wants to do it again (she's 8 though) to help someone else, and if my (then)5 yr old can selflessly do that, so can I, especially if I'm not going to use them again.

I'm not a Organ Donor but have been thinking about it.   My FIL had a Kidney Transplant and a good friend from college also had a Kidney Transplant.  Thank Goodness for donors!

I am.  For one, I don't like waste.  If I have to die I would like to know that at least someone else will be saved or have better quality of life becuase of it.

I am and I dont see why ppl wouldnt if its my time then its my time an if I can save another person through my loss I know that family would be grateful to be able to have many more yrs with a loved one!! That is if there is anything good left on me by the time I go! I know that if it were me or my family an most important my kids I would be forever thankful to the organ donor that saved them!

I am an organ donor... but I don't want them to take my eyes.  They can have whatever else they want, but not those...

 I am donor and proud of it, I am one for the simple reason everyone should. If it was me, my family member or specially my children that was the one that needed that kidney, heart, or lung I would pray that someone else is out there that feels the same as me & we would be able to find one that matched. I know I will not need them when I am gone so no use of me keeping them, when it will save someone elses mother, father, sister/brother, or daughter/son life. I have even had this talk already with my 9 year old, he is blood type O so he is already counting down the time tell he can donate blood, he thinks its cool I did, and when he questioned me about why I did it I told him. Bump to all those out there that do & are donors.
