    Should the family of a person who is brain dead give consent to donate vital organs?

    Vital organs include kidneys, liver, heart,etc. Eye(corneal transplant) donation too.

    I would say yes to that as their family member would have probably wanted things that way.

    The question of consent shouldn't be a factor, doctors should be able to take what they need, the rest can go to the fertilzer factory and glue factory.

    When my father died, I would have voted yes to donate his organs but his body was too far gone and knowing my siblings, they would have objected anyway. This is a very personal choice that must be dealt with by each family without pressure. It would not be fair to anyone or their family to force donation and some families have religious concerns or simply do not like the idea. That is their choice and they should not be coerced or forced to make such a difficult decision at a very emotional time because they may regret their final choice (either way) for years to come.

    It may sound like a "no-brainer," but when your loved one is lying there, still warm, heart beating, it can be a hard decision. I really thank those who have made this decision for their courage and generosity in their darkest hour.
