    Default Organ Donor?

    I'm just wonder who has said yeah they'd donate their organs if died in a car accident or so. I mean the option on your drivers license, saying yes or no u are a donor.

    Currently mine says no, but i want to be a donor if i do die from an accident or so, but just the thought of dying is scary....so i rather not think about it whenever i look at my drivers license. Thats why mine says no right now, but yeah! Who's a donor??


    if your a donor, give me your kidney so i can sell it on the black market. =D ...i wonder if anyone will see this....ahahah.

    Mine is a No too, and I also heard some histories of people that were declared dead, just so they could get their organs..

    And If I'm going to be a donnor got to go to someone deserve, not some random dude that will get up off bed with a new kidney and drink it to death again!

    That's not always true though. To speak for myself, my dad had a liver transplant about 10 years ago. It wasn't because he drank or anything, it was because he had hepatitis B and it affected his liver.

    I'm an organ donor, why not help when your dead anyways? It could help a less fortunate person. Although my mom was mad when she heard I said yes, but whatever.

    I saw it..

    In France there is nothing of the sort written on the driving licence, but anyway I am not listed as a donor as of now... maybe I'll do it later though (I would like to live in a A-Xiang like body lol )

    @abaile : ouch >.>

    There was a great show about donors in the Netherlands, called the Big Donor Show, the show was about this: there is a woman, who is willing to give away a kidney, but she chooses who gets it. It caused great controversy, and the show has made many people say yes to giving away their organs.

    I don't think you'll understand it though.

    I think I'll say yes but I'm not old enough to decide yet.

    I normally say no to being an organ donor when I complete the paperwork to renew my drivers license, so there's no mention of this anywhere on the new license.

    That doesn't mean I refuse to be an organ donor, but this is something I'd rather deal with in legal documents (Directive To Physicians plus Living Will) so I can name someone now who can say yes or no to the donation of my organs later...and then state under what circumstances they will have the authority to make that decision on my behalf. If this sounds complicated, it really isn't...two short paragraphs was all that I needed to settle the issue.

    Hopefully by the time this is ever needed my organs will so old and worn out that nobody would want to touch them with a ten foot pole.

    I don't see any rational reason why someone would not donate his organs if he died unexpectedly. I mean, it's not as if you'll be needing them when you're dead.

    I'm worried about some paramedic coming accross me at an accident site, seeing a donor card in my wallet and secretly covering my mouth and nose.
