How do you feel about donating your organs after your death?
I personally don't mind what they do with my organs when I don't need them anymore but should it be voluntary or compulsory?
I feel violated and very uncomfortable knowing that parts of my body will continue serving another human.
Deep inside I feel that if my organs serve another man of God, someone who has Christ in him - I will gladly approve donation.
But if my organs go to Joe Shmuck, who burn the air for nothing and have no mission in life, who has no God in him - then I feel like I would be rubbed.
That's very one sided. We all are made in Gods image
A joe Shmuck is quite de- humanizing. And not very Christian.
Lor's S, I hesitated to write until you bravely added your comment. "Joe Shmuck who burns the air for nothing and has no mission in life" is the antithesis of any type of Christianity I've ever known. I can't be silent on this either.
and the other side of the issue--- maybe that organ is the catalyst to bring poor old Joe to Christ. the fact that some one he doesnt know gave him a continued lease on life
I am going to donate my spine.
The reason is most of it is fused and last year after a very traumatic surgery in which they had to pull my skull back up from my brain stem I figured someone will benefit from my.anatomy and it will help future spine surgeons how to deal with complex surgical procedures. But I want my head!
I'm serious. They already took part of my lower spine. They may as well take the neck,
I do have good eyes and I would love for someone to see through the windows of my soul,
I think everything else is not healthy enough for donation.
I have pretty well worn out most of it but if there is anything that can help someone they sure can have it. I wont be needing it because I will get a new immortal one that will not wear out.
chinese community do not like to have their organs removed from the body after death. They believe that one is not fully a person and cannot be reincarnated in the next life. I believe Americans are more broadminded abt this matter. If i could, i would donate , really i would.
Although sometimes (at minimum) I do indeed feel that my parts will not necessarily help anyone. Why would they want parts that I have not necessarily managed in a significantly positive and "good" manner? Yet, deep down I know that this is what God would want; that is, to unselfishly donate some parts of ourself to help others survive and do His work... Therefore, I would gladly donate any or everything if and only if it would be used to do God's work. I certainly would never want anyone(s) to mandate this and make it law though...
I would have no problem donating my organs or my body to science or for transplants. At university I trained on cadavers in biology and using the bodies was very beneficial to learning.
I do feel that this should be voluntary though as many people aren't comfortable with the idea.
I feel so many people could be saved through transplants but I still think it is a personal choice. I do believe if you feel strongly about donating, you should carry a card or make it known to your loved ones that you wish this to happen when you die.

Do you know someone who is smarter than you are, and how do you feel about that person?EG:- You find yourself saying things like "She thinks she knows everything". In your head you hear the corollary "She DOES know everything and that is why she is so annoying."

Should a death row inmate be allowed to donate organs?There is a case in Ohio where an inmate, scheduled to be executed very soon, requested that he be able to donate an organ to an ailing relative. He was refused. It's not fair to punish the relative for his crime. However, others may try the same...
