    Is your organ going to them for free? I would totally get rid of an organ to make 10,000 dollars I could not give up my young life to save an older life for nothing though. Greedy I guess, sad face.

    In life, certainly. If it meant another could be helped, saved even then it would be a donation I would give gladly. And unlike Nspeel I wouldn't want any money.

    In death I am a complete organ donor, you name it if it's still working ok they can use it. Our bodies are only a shell after all, a means of allowing us to interact and experience this world. The essence that is me would have been long gone before they'd start removing things!

    I  am a total organ donor upon death .. My daughter  21 yrs old has been on the transplant list for a kidney for some time now.  I can not give her one for I was born with only one. But because of this I decided to become a total donor after my truck rolled over  and I was  pinned for sometime Jan. 2011 and realized she would of lost a perfect match of mine .... so yes is to your answer ... alive or deceased

    depends on which organ. My heart, no.. I need that to live.  My penis.. no i really like that. My appendix? Sure I don't need that.

    Now if you're talking about the kind of organ you play... It would depend on if I paid for it because if I did I'd probably want to sell it, unless I was donating to a church or orphanage or good cause.

    We come from the earth and return back in death.

    If we can use our organs to help another living being to survive and that person will continue the earth of learning, it is for a good deed. I do believe many of us would be most willing to do so upon our death.

    It will be our honor to help another person's survival with our organs, so the answer will be YES.

    I would definitely consider it. I've heard great stories about living donors and how they bless people's lives. I would have to wait until I'm done having kids.

    No I want to die with everything I was born with.

    Yes I would.

    Once I'm dead I don't care what happens to my physical bits - they can do what they like with them. When we cross over, like money, we can't take our body with us. Someone else would be better off getting the benefit.

    Having said all this - especially when a lot younger - I ate, drank and smoked so much crap I'm not sure there are any bits fit to be used for any other poor soul. So maybe I'm just destined for some creepy lab some where!!!
