Default Organ donation

I've just signed up to be an organ donor. I've always hated the idea, but I just realised that I was being selfish - if someone close to me needed it I'd want other people to donate

So now I will!

yes i've always been one - we have absolutely no use for our bodies when we're dead so why not give someone the chance of life? you're not losing anything. i'm a very strong advocate for this. because you just NEVER know, there may come a time in the future (although i sincerely hope not, for myself and everyone) where we or our loved ones may benefit from an organ donor.

you did a great thing, when my brother pass my step mother (he's my step but he's more to me than a step)gave his steam cells and some organs to a family and some steam cell place.

We got to meet the family that has his liver. so it made her feel like he's still around, he was also creamated and we wear him around our necks everyday so he's still here.

When i renew mine i will also sign up to be one also.

congrads to you and i'm super proud of you! (hugs)

Organ donation is great. Just make SURE that your wishes are made known to your family, next of kin. Because once you die, your family or next of kin is asked what they want to do!! Even if you have signed up on your drivers license, etc. They still have to get PERMISSION from the next of kin. So make sure that they KNOW that you want to donate. Otherwise it might not be done. I can't stress that enough.

Awesome. I figure if I'm dead it doesn't matter.... and it will help someone else. Even if it is just some med students learning to operate. (Donated to science)

I'm an RN and I can assure you that when someone comes in, we do NOT look at drivers licenses to see if they want to be an organ donor. That's just to let your family know that you'd like to do that if they didn't know. So make sure and communicate your wishes to your family. Because if they say NO, we can't use your organs, even if you said YES on your drivers license. It is up to the next of kin to make that decision. Doesn't seem like they should have that power to veto your decision to donate your organs, but they do.
