    I am. My parents don’t agree because my brother passed away from complications due to a car accident and my dad feel that because he was an organ donor the hospital let him die. But he was in such pain and would have never been the same. Through his sacrifice he helped 5 people live.

    I mean, I haven’t died yet, so I am not technically a donor but I am OFFERING my organs to donate. Smile

    Better someone using them than me taking them 6 feet under.

    @Sapphire-Dreamer:  I’ve heard this argument before. It does make me a little iffy to be honest. But I have to trust that this isn’t reality, or hope. Or at least that I wouldn’t encounter it. If everyone everywhere decided not to become an organ donor for fear a bad dr would do that, it’d be a tragedy.

    Yes I am. 

    And no, not a single hospital,  doctor, nurse or surgeon is ever going to let you die to harvest your organs. Their job is to save your life. And once that is 100% not happening,  a totally separate team comes in to see if your body is viable for donations. This medical myth makes about as much sense as not vaccinating because “ermygosh that idiot with no medical training all on tv told me it would give my kdis autism”  Both are just false

    I am. In my line of work I’ve seen too many people go downhill as they anxiously sit on the waiting list. I will have absolutely no use for my organs after I die. Why keep them?

    @Ninteenthchance:  I watched that video too! It made me smile.

    I am an organ donor and blood donor, and so is FI.

    You bet I would donate. I don’t need them after I’m gone.

    I work in an ICU so we have people all the time on life support and on the verge of death. The goal is ALWAYS to save the life of that patient if possible. 

    And yes, I am an organ donor.

    @soontobemrsm11:  usually it’s not Drs who do this but EMTs who realize the person isn’t going to make it 1 life vs 5-6? honestly even if this is true it doesn’t bother me..

    yes. aside from maybe religious reasons, I think it’s selfish not to be.
