My mother signed up to have her body used for medical research on her death (well, obviously!) and this went ahead in 1987. I have also signed up for the same thing.
Neither of us are/were religious so we felt that it would be more hypocritical to have a church service.
However, there are still clauses, they will not accept your body if there has been a post mortem, lots of other things as well.

Short answer: YES

When i'm dead, i have no more use for my body. So they can do what they want with it. I like the idea of my death can help someone else have a longer/better life.
I also donate blood regularly.

I am a proud organ donar, I think if someone can use a part of me once I ahve left this mortal coil to benefit another then it should be theres. Unfortunatly where I live the waiting list for donantions is over ten times as long as the yearly donation rate. This is not due to the rate of organ donars being low, while it is low it has been improving in recent years, mainly it is over the fact that close relatives of the deceased have to be the ones to verify there use, and if they don't know in advance that this is the deceased wishes the time of use iss often passed before they can be for want of a better term harvested. So if you want to be a giv er of life or knowledge to others through the donation of your body to science or organs for medical use, let members of your family know so that your gift wont be wasted.

I think that if you would be willing to accept someone elses body part, you should also be willing to donate your own. I'm not sure where i stand of as yet but maybe i'll become a little less selfish when my liver fails.

I am a registered organ donor. If my heart can save a life after I have died, part of me will live on.
I certainly won't need it any more!

I am an organ donor and have had it marked on my license forever. thumbup HOWEVER, there are a few "parts" that freak me out, and I've instructed my family that they CANNOT be donated. I quiz them a few times a year just to make sure they remember. I am keeping my skin (all of it) and my eyes. Embarassed Yes, I know I will be dead and all, but the whole thought of removing those things gives me the creeps. Everything else can go, tho! confused5

I am an organ donor also. It will be wonderful if something from me can be used to save someone after I go. I sort of understand CurlyGirly's concern about donating her skin and eyes. But to me sight is the most precious sense and if I can give sight to someone, I just have to do it.

However, I have a feeling a few of my organs will be worthless when I do go, Liver for sure, LOL!

Yes, I'm a organ donor. Why not? At least it will help someone.

I've been a registered organ donor for many years. I won't be needing anything after I'm gone and if there's even the most remote possibility that another person or persons could be helped, it's totally worth it to me.

When I am gone, do what you like. I am signed up to "body for students to cut up" because I don't think anyone will want 70+ year old body parts. I've used them pretty hard!

WHOA!!!!.....The question is NOT about organ donation...its about donating your whole body to medical research...as in medical students dissecting/cutting up your body. I am an organ donor for parts and pieces, but NOT whole body.

Thanks, ANN for raising this thought provoking question.

OK chefkathleen...I'll admit that I didn't respond to the title as much as I did the substance of her writing and therefore "donation" comments would be acceptable. In my opinion, the question as written, was more about whole body donation than just organ donation....based on her opening sentence.

Hope ya still love me....Rick

Very well said. It just takes time to get used to it. I've looked at threads and started to respond before looking at the date and realizing sometimes, that it's an old thread that someone has dug up. Thread necromancy? d'oh! As they say Rick, shite happens. evil4

This is no laughing matter, Alan. I worked in a piano shop for a week once and had to lug an organ from the back of the shop to the truck out front; it was bloody heavy and a pain in the arse to manoeuvre.

EDIT: True story.

I have been an organ donor since the time I was able to make that decision. It became even more impactful when my ex was working in the cardiac unit in the Hospital. I would hear about people waiting for a new heart and how their young family was there crying tears of happiness because mommy or daddy was about to get a new lease on life thanks to someone who had decided to be a donor themselves.

If I can help a family in a way like that I would say that...yes I am very proud to be an organ donor thumbright

As a cancer survivor I am not eligable to donate.
I find this excuse comforting as I am not at all sure I would be brave enough to sign the card. Something about it makes me think one could be harvested before all hope was lost.

Surely silence can sometimes be the most eloquent of replies

Sorry - now you have lost me. What is the difference? When the kids have finished cutting you up your successors can have the bits back for a closed coffin funeral, if that's what you are worried about. Or is it that there are bits of you you don't want them messing with?

If the latter, why?
