Are you open to organ donation?
Facebook has introduced a new App that brings awareness to organ donation and many people who had not previously considered it are now open to donate their organs. What are your views on organ donation?
Though not as common as many paranoid conspiracy theorists believe, the possibility still exists that doctors may make the "pull the plug" call prematurely if the patient is an organ donor. This is a fact that I have an issue reckoning with. Every year at least one doctor makes the news for making such poor judgement calls. I would not be against organ donation when I die, but I hope it is truly because nothing else can be done for me at the time or I am so old that my body is just giving up despite any doctor's efforts. Saving lives is a truly noble quest when it comes to organ donors, but I do not wish to give my life away for this cause because a doctor decides my life can save many more.
I believe in Singapore, our government has a good policy where every citizen is automatically an organ donor unless individual opt out.
It is nice to know that your parts will be in good use as to save lives.
I've always carried an organ donor card, but I was a bit worried by an item in a book I read a few weeks ago which questioned whether apparently unconscious donors, whose bodies are kept alive by artificial means to protect the organs, can actually feel pain when those organs are removed. Medical science says they don't, so does not use any anesthesia; this book claimed numerous surgeons opt out of donation because they aren't convinced of it. I don't know if this was just scaremongering or whether there is a real question mark over this. I still carry the card, but I'd like to feel assured that what I read was nonsense.
Absolutely, definitely yes. Even though I'm no spring chicken, I believe there are some spare parts in me that can be used to repair somebody. And what a way to recycle yourself after you're gone ! Since I don't really believe there is any kind of life after death, this is to me the best possible way to hang around a little more, even if only in pieces
I am donating all my vital organs and eyes - whatever remains that could not be put to use will be Cremated. I really don't see what is wrong with this option after death actually I only see right and good. The soul returns if you believe in hereaft.
Most definitely! I am a card carrying organ donor--just in case. I also am on the list for bone marrow as well.
It's all about sharing!
