Sure why not. It's not like I'll need it any more and it is the last gift I can give a stranger if any of the organs can be used.

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.


While you may not be able to donate your organs for transplant, your body certainly could be used for teaching in cadaver lab and of course for research.

Hell, if anything I have is worthy of helping when i go.. Take it. I see no point in turning to fertiliser if my bits could help someone else.

Edit- That is inclusive of organ donation and science, either is fine. The thought of being incinerated or in the ground seems like a waste to me.

I'm already an organ donor. But I wouldn't donate my body to science.

Yes. Not being willing to donate organs seems to me to be the absolute height of selfishness. If someone can use anything left over when I'm dead, let them have it.

I am a registered organ donor. I hope that someone else can benefit from me when I go...kicking and screaming.

Happy to leave it to science as well. It might prove useful to show them what a screwed up perverse mind looks like = )

Would you like fries with that?

Im already an organ donor, have been since about the age of 17/18. My brother died a few years ago and parts of his leg muscles went to people, skin, even his corneas. Im not gonna need my body after i die so it might as well go to somebody who needs it rather than be cremated or rotting in the ground.

They can take anything they want that is working properly or not working at all, as long as they don't make a profit from it.

I am listed as an organ donor. They can cremate what's left of me.

I feel that my body, after death, does not belong to me.
It belongs to those who are surviving me.
Whether to donate the body or organs to scientific research,creamate it or bury it, its their decision, not mine.
As after death, I am left with no will and can not decide even for myself.
Let those to whom this body belongs, decide themselves.

Only YOU can decide whether or not you want to be an organ donor or donate your body to science.

Well if I had an illnes that was rare or something, then I would donate my body to sience to help people that have the same thing as I did.

That's why I decide to donate my organs. I would go more in peace knowing that I have given countless of people life with my body. So in a way I still get to live in a way.

Once a man has gone from this world, he is left with no will.
Any determination before death is just a wish.
I do feel that human bodies are no more needed for research as stated by someone.
My body after death belongs to my next in kin.
Even if I had left a will and my next in kin are not honoring it, its hardly of any value.
Science has all the resources now of internet etc at their disposal.

That's fine and all, but unless you say so BEFORE you die, legally no one can donate your organs or your body to science. It's something you have to specify BEFORE you die. Like right now, if I died, my organs would be donated because my driver's license says I'm an organ donor. If there were no indication of this, my organs couldn't/wouldn't be donated. So while donating your organs is a nice thing to do, no one can use them unless you say so BEFORE you die. That's just how it works.

i am an organ donor. i signed up for it when i got my driver's license.

Success is doing what you love, and doing it so well that someone will pay you for it.

SWW, that is a state law. In FL and all of the other states I am licensed in, the Power of Attorney has the right to make those decisions.

Interestingly, in FL, a DNR is not legal unless it is on the proper shade of yellow paper. It can be a copy of a copy as long as it is the right color. Original on white, not legal.
