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.

My point is rather a twisted one.
We are making a will for ourselves AFTER our death, when we are not left with any will.
Does it matter to make a will for a time we have none?
Will is from a living being, not from or about dead persons.
Its so simple to make a will while living; if that will is not honored by my posterity or siblings,
that will is worth nothing.
They can always come up with a point that a will of a donation after life is not binding.

A tread as this one (as it is) would have only organs donor responding. It's ok.

The fact is that so many people dye or wait for months or years, and all they need is an healthy and fit for them organ to continue to live their life while every day for accidents peoples die and perfectly good organ that could have been save a life go to waste.

I know that there are many reasons behind not donating an organ, but letting a person on a waiting list die is also shameful.

Organ donation should be the norm.

Though I've not done anything official to sign for organ donation this post is making me think more toward it. There are stories of people receiving donated organs and their personality or character changing somewhat to the donating person or picking up talents that they didn't posses prior. Two stories that come to mind. One of a heart donor who was brutally murdered. The person who received the heart began having terrible dreams shortly after receiving their new heart. These dreams had amazing detail of the disturbing act of the murder. With The testimony of this new "witness" a suspect was convicted of the murder. Another story of a young man who received donated eyes from a young woman. As a show of appreciation he visited the family of the deceased woman to thank them and allow them to once again see the eyes of their loved one. The family was shocked when meeting this man as their daughter who was an artist had beautifully drawn a detailed portrait of this man months before her death, though they had never met.
The gift of donation is life changing for the receiver, but maybe it allows the donor the chance to life yet too?
Something to thing about...and I think I may actually sign mine now, it's been awhile since I had considered it. So thanks to who started this post...you may have just saved a life too.

My husband has actually asked that I donate his body to science. If I can donate his organs to save another person's life... I will. However, I also want him around for a long time. I've already told him to donate what organs of mine that can be donated should that situation ever arise. It's not a pleasant talk... but it's a talk we had to have as a couple.

If God won't take us missing a few "physical" parts, then so be it. However, the God I believe in will love & accept us no matter what.

I'm a registered organ donor. I'm not donating my body to science, though.

I don't have anything against it, I just don't want to. I'm vain enough to want a normal, open-casket (if possible) funeral when the time comes. Complete with a burial.

Besides, if there's no body to bury, where will my enemies dance when I die?

I am an organ donor. My daughter had a kidney transplant at age 6. If I could help anyone have a better quality of life or live longer, why wouldn't I?

Absolutely I am an organ donor. Wish everyone was. If I am too old or for other reasons unusable for harvesting my organs, I would want my body donated to science. They give your ashes back to your loves ones. And it is all free. I'm all about free for whomever I leave behind. Local medical schools would love to talk to you about it.

Yup - registered organ donor and marked on my driver's license as such as well. Donate my body... sure, why not! I'll be done with it, and if they haul the old wreck away for free at that point - and maybe it can do some good for some medical student or something, absolutely. Maybe the one last thing one can do to help out our fellow man.

An Editor's Pick and closing in on becoming my first FAMOUS STORY, less than 250 views away! I hope you'll give it a read. (Just click the pic!)

They considered the receiver a witness? In which country/century was that?

I carry a 'donor codicil'. My organs will probably not be suitable for transplants after 25 years of diabetes, but they may be interesting for science.

Definitely listed everywhere for organ donation should something happen to me..... everyone who knows me know this is what I want and I see it as a positive thing to come out of a bad situation, helping someone else in need when I am beyond the need of such things.

Why or why not?


I'm signed up for organ donation. I'd donate the rest to science, but they'd want to cremate the leftovers, which is very wasteful of energy. I want to be buried in such a way that the body returns to the earth.

I think you're talking about when a stripper puts on glasses and suddenly she's a "nerd". That's hot. Actual nerdy chicks, not so much.

Smart girls and nerdy girls aren't necessarily synonymous.

I do plan on being an organ donor because if I don't need it anymore but someone else might to save their life, then they should be able to use mine.
