Just found out that organs to be donated are taken from people just after they are took of life support so they are not actually dead. Disgusting!!! No, never in a million years is anyone having my organs, consider me selfish I am fine with that and I don't want any of anyone else because of the reason I stated above

OMG That is my boyfriends argument when we discussed the topic of organ donation the other night. He was all like: "You're not entirely dead yet and they start taking your organs right away and who says you can't feel it all?!" But let me clarify this once more (it's been done quite often now, haha) Once you're braindead (so you're dead, machines still keep your body alive, but there's no brainactivity whatsoever anymore) they take your organs, because it's best for the organs. Like someone's already said: organs need to be fresh, or the chance of rejection in the adoption body will be bigger.

You are dead, you can't feel a thing and they don't take your organs before your family has said goodbye to you in the hospital. And once they've taken your organs, they stuff you back up and make your body nice again so that if, during the funeral, you'd like an open casket, it won't show that you're missing some organs.

I'm totally pro-donation. I'm donating EVERYTHING, heart, eyes, lungs, everything. My mother isn't too please I'm donating my heart and eyes, because she thinks it's a bit of my personality. Well, personality isn't in ones heart. And it's not like they use the iris of your eyes, they just use the seethrough layer, so it's not like someone else has your eyes.

I actually feel good about me being a registered donor, because I know that I can save lives. I would want an organ if I'd need it, so I think it's only fair to give other people an organ.

I'd even donate an organ to someone who's close to me while I'm still alive. If someone in my family would need an organ and I'd match, I'd totally give up one lung, kidney, or whatever. I wouldn't even have to think about it, I'd be under the knife before they could ask me to think of it.

For those who aren't donating: Will you accept an organ if you'd need one?

I think that's a really interesting point to bring up.  I agree with you - if someone I loved needed, say, a kidney, and I was a match, I'd give it up without a second thought.  I mean, I know giving up a kidney or something can shorten your life, and it means you have to be careful, but I think it'd be a small sacrifice to make, comparably.

I'm donating everything too, all organs and tissue.  One view I have is that, you know, I'll be dead I want need any of that 'junk' any more.  Also it's just gonna go to waste if I keep it.

My mom is completely behind me but she did say "I could object to it though.  I won't but I could."  And for some reason it struck me as funny that she assumed I was gonna go first.

I feel good too.  I describe myself as a temporary organ storage holder.  I feel a little bit obligated to make sure they stay as good as possible too.

See that wouldn't bother me, if they need a kidney (or Hell even the heart) I'd be there (I know they wouldn't take a heart out of a healthy 20 year old but you get the point).


I always want to explain why I may have seemed a little...aggressive last night.  When I read Elizabeth's two posts (one of which Pam has quoted) I was worried about a young person coming across it and thinking that the next time they fall asleep in a hospital some doctor was going to rip out their organs while they are still alive (and healthy).  So I apologise if I seemed to be shouting Elizabeth down and in doing so offended any-one here.  I had a lot on my mind at the time.


OK I have a question (primarily for those of us donating, but those who aren't can take part if they choose):  If you donated an organ to someone (something 'light' like a kidney) would you want to about the recipient?  Would you want them to contact you?  And if you recieved a deceased person's organ (hehe) would you want to know about them or contact their family?

I'd want to know - I think I'd be curious.  Definitely if I received an organ, I'd want to at least thank whoever donated it (or their family, if they were dead).

Lol, that comment about the temporary organ storage cracked me up

But I wouldn't really care who's organs I'd get I'd be happy to get one lol. I'd only contact the family if THEY wanted to, because obviously I'd have a part of their loved one in me.

If I gave up an organ (and still live ) I'd know that person, because I wouldn't give up my organs to a complete and total stranger, so I can't really answer that question. Because obviously I'd be in contact with them haha.

I have another question to ask you all, which I thought would probably slot in here quite nicely:  What do you all think about blood donation?  Do you donate blood?  After all, it's something that your body produces more of to replace any that has been lost, and blood donation is one of the least painless and most relaxing procedures going (at least in my opinion!).

I really want to be a blood donator. But I can't because of my piercing. I think everyone should donate blood, at least those who got needed types.

What about bone marrow and stem cells? They got new ways of donating that in now, so it ain't as painful as it was before.

I would definitaly do it, because it gives people with cancer a greater possibility to survive.

Marit - oh yeah, I know that having a piercing means you can't donate blood for a while.   I donated twice, but then I fainted after the second one and they told me not to come back for a year (I think I was under the target weight just slightly).   I think my year is nearly up though, and then I'll definitely go back and give it again, if they'll let me!

As for bone marrow and stem cells...I would do it, but the last I heard, you had to go into hospital and have a proper operation to donate that, and...well, I know it probably sounds selfish, but I just don't really have the time to do that at the moment.

I'd love to be a blood-donor. I'd donate anything they could use. (except for my ovules)

I've got a few things that keep me from donating blood though:
1)    I wouldn't know where to donate blood
2)    I'm kind of afraid to do so 
3)    I don't have the time to do it 

I know, stupid reasons, but they've kept me out of the chair for a couple of years now.

1)    I wouldn't know where to donate blood[/qupteCan you not go to the hospital or maybe go to your GP and ask him/her about it.  But I got the same thing so I'm not really one to talk

You're not scared of needles too are you?  I LOVE needles, when I was in hospital I used watch the blood pour into the syringe with such, admiration and respect
