Well are you?
I am not currently and I am sure I am in the minority
I am. If I'm dead, why do I need my organs? I'd rather give them to someone in need, I'd appreciate getting an organ if I needed one.
I am. It is incredibly selfish not to be. I won't need my organs when I'm dead, and I would hope that they could in turn provide a life for somebody else.
I am. I figure I won't be needing them anymore.
I don't think it's fair to call someone who doesn't wish their organs to be donated selfish. It's a very personal decision and you really can't judge people who don't share your wish to donate organs.
I am currently an organ donor.
I am. I also donate blood, and I have registered in the bone marrow directory.
I am and my life insurance goes to some stranger too.
yes I am an organ donor
Just a random stranger?
I am not, I could be, but last time I was asked yay or nay I was still living with my mom, and she wouldn't have it. Idk why, but she would not let me. Now that it's my choice I'm still sort of on the fence.
Yes, but I'd prefer it if you'd wait until I'm dead. Then you can help yourself.
I am, I would stay away from my lungs and liver though, my eyes work pretty well...
Yes, I am. We had a lengthy discussion about this in PRSI not too long ago. Lots of us were in favor of an opt-out system.
I take care of too many patients on too long of waiting lists for too few organs. I donate blood regularly and once I'm gone, what's recyclable is all yours.
My exact answer, except I donate platelets instead of blood.
And most importantly, my family is fully aware of my desire to donate.
I will take everything with me to the grave. all my macs, iphones, organs...
buried with your computers? lol
I am as well.
I'm currently not and I never really thought about it. I'm not sure. For all I know my girlfriend might want to feast on my remains.
No. It is selfish. You have no use for your organs after death and not being a donor is stupid and selfish. Especially if you are healthy and young. If I die young, I am donating EVERYTHING POSSIBLE. I have saved many lives throughout my life and I plan on becoming a doctor and saving even more. I want that to continue even after I die.
Agreed 110% There is absolutely no reason why a person shouldn't be an organ donor. Unless they have some underlying condition.
Want a reason? Because I don't want to. That's reason enough and you should be able to respect that EVEN if you, in your opinion, think its stupid and selfish. Sorry if it doesn't support your views
No. That reason is not good enough. You will be dead. That is just despicable to refuse to donate simply because you don't want to. Someone will die because you don't want to donate your organ after you are dead. What is wrong with you?
Oh but it is good enough. Evidenced by the fact I am not a donor
Live with it
