Absolutely. This is a subject I feel VERY strongly about as my dad would probably still be alive today if he had received a heart sooner. Instead he had to be kept alive by machines for over two weeks while he waited and by the time they found a heart for him the machines had completely shut down his other organs and he had no chance. Maybe even a couple of days sooner and things would have been okay...
The way I see it is that my organs are going to just be burned with my body when I'm cremated and what's the point in that? Such a waste. It's an opportunity to save someone's life and I don't understand how anyone would say no to that just to essentially throw the organs away.
I also find it to be incredibly comforting to know that there's a chance that something good could come from my death.
Because if my organs can be used to extend and/or give someone else (or hopefully several someone elses) a better quality of life, then I don't want them either rotting inside me or being cremated with me instead of doing that.
I'm not gonna be using them, so some one else would be better off with them
